Our friends that had moved out of state came to visit and we had to see them! They are the most wonderful people and they have the sweetest kiddos.
We had been to the Luggage Room in Pasadena with them before and hadn’t been back since then so we decided it was time for a visit!
After chatting for a bit the husbands went to order and oh man did we order!
They ordered a couple of pizzas and a salad. We ordered a chopped salad, a burrata pizza, and some deviled eggs.
You guys, I love a good chopped salad. Nothing makes me happier than being able to shovel salad in my mouth without the interruption of oddly shaped leaves being half in and half out of my mouth. This salad was right up my ally!
The deviled eggs were yummy. There was either mustard or horseradish or something mixed in to give it a bit of a kick. We both really like deviled eggs, but it’s not something we commonly see on a menu. I think we were surprised and intrigued by the fact it was at a pizza place.
The pizza was a Neapolitan style and you know how much I LOVE a good Neapolitan pizza.
The burrata was gooey and soft, the sauce added a really great brightness to contrast the rich cheese. I love that they just chop up a bunch of basil to top off their pizzas. It adds a nice herby freshness.
After eating, talking, and more eating and talking we had to go our separate ways. We had plans to go to Alcove and were sad they couldn’t join us, but so happy to have seen them.
Alcove had a line to order food but since we just wanted a slice of cake we were able to skip the line. We eye drooled over all the cakes on display but settled on an oldie but a goodie-the birthday cake 😋
Okay so that’s where we had planned on our food adventure ending, but B mentioned that Donut Man was on the way home.
Donut Man is kinda famous in SoCal for their glazed donut filled with strawberries. There is usually a line and we had been once before. Sadly the other donut they are known for is a tiger tail but they ran out before we ordered the last time.
We were determined to get a tiger tail this time. And we did…along with a couple of other donuts…
The tiger tail was warm and I could feel it through the box. That led us to trying that and all the donuts in the car 😬
Totally worth it because very few things are as wonderful as a warm, yeasty donut. This was a good combination of melt in your mouth and having a good chew. Donut Man does a great classic donut!
We drove back home sugared up and tummies full!
