Proudly taking our name after what was known as an spontaneous and
intellectual meeting called "Cabildo Abierto" in Buenos Aires, between May 22nd and May 25th, in the year 1810. The meeting came under strong pressure from the militias & crowd formed in front of the Cabildo. This large group of middle to upper class citizens favored the stance of a local politicians, and the Cabildo ended up creating the Primera Junta or First Assembly. The first form of local goverment in the territory that would later became Argentina. Spain would never recover it’s dominion over our territory. Every May 25Th we celebrate by preparing traditional "criollo" dishes, and it's fair to say that our whole country stops to commemorate one of our most patriotic holidays.

An unassuming Indian that fans call the best in Pasadena specializing in a fascinating adn extensive menu of authentic dishes from all over the subcontinent. Are you hungry in Pasadena? Welcome to All India Cafe, where you can find great Indian
food available for sit-down dining, delivery or takeout. Check out our online menu and place an order from our site. Don’t want to order now? Visit us at 39 S. Fair Oaks Ave.
Read a review: Once you've enjoyed the unique fare at this friendly little eatery, you'll find it hard to settle for the predictable menus at most area Indian restaurants. Chef-owner Santokh Singh previously cooked at L.A.'s celebrated Bombay Café, and it shows in the diverse, intriguing menu. Start with aloo tikki, potato pancakes topped with onions, tamarind and chutney; uttapam, a thin griddlecake made with cream of wheat; or the crispy pakoras, fritters of onion, shrimp or fish. Entrées include an array of curries; aromatic meats from the tandoor; and frankies, burrito-like rolls that are sold by street vendors on the beaches of Bombay. Even the desserts are satisfying, especially the Indian rice pudding and the mango or ginger ice cream. The small storefront restaurant is attractively appointed with authentic Indian artifacts. You’ll also find a nice Indian beer list ranging from Old Monk Super to Himalayan Blue, and a short but pleasant wine list.
