If you’re driving up Allen Ave a bit past Orange Grove Blvd in Pasadena, don’t blink or you will miss Old Sasoon Bakery. It is located in a nondescript row of businesses, steps past a Lutheran church.
Spaceman found this gem scouting for a reasonably priced place for lunch that also had flavor, bingo! Old Sassoon Bakery has fast become a staple in our restaurant rotation.
I can picture him as a kid when he sips his drink with that smile on his face. Okay, back to the food – they offer lahmajoun, beoregs, flatbreads, baklava, and more. The prices cannot be beat (sandwiches $3.50 – $4.00) and the taste is addictive. I never thought to use mint in sandwiches the way they do.
