It’s all in the name at Pasadena Fish Market, a tiny seafood joint a few blocks north of Old Town Pasadena. In addition to fresh seafood sold by the pound, you can order excellent Jamaican dishes here over the deli counter. This place is best known for tender, garlicky oxtails, which slip right off the bone, and spicy jerk chicken. But they also serve tons of fried fish specials and soul food side dishes, like yams, fresh mac and cheese, and crispy fried okra. Keep it in mind for takeout the next time you’re on your way to a show at the Rose Bowl.

An outdoor, island-like Caribbean BYOB that’s a great time. In Santa Monica, no less.
