The Raymond, Racion, POP Champagne and Desserts Bar - Old Pasadena
Last week I went on a restaurant crawl for the first time! It was so much fun - the idea behind it is that you hit up different restaurants and have different parts of your meal at each restaurant. My first stop was The Raymond. I went for happy hour, which means the bar menu was half price. I had the beef tataki and the pork belly tacos. Both were awesome, and I am definitely going back for happy hour to try their other dishes. My next stop was Racion, a Spanish tapas and small plates restaurant. I had the Spanish Charcuterie plate, the lamb meatballs, and the French cod. I loved the lamb meatballs, but I wouldn’t order the other two dishes again. Finally, I had a strawberry banana souffle and an Irish car bomb at POP Champagne and Dessert Bar. The restaurant also offers dinner, but I think their desserts are better than their dinner food. They have a different flavor souffle every day, and you have to wait about 15 minutes for the souffle, but it is worth it! Overall, the restaurant crawl was a ton of fun and I look forward to doing another one.
