Pasadena Food For Any Occasion

Great quality food can be hard to come by at your usual franchise restaurants. Edwin Mills by Equator has been family owned and ran for thirty years.

These are only some of the popular favorites among our regulars. Check out our Menus Page to find out more about what our restaurant offers. Our menu has a variety of options because we’ve had a very long time to perfect each of these recipes. We are constantly adding new menu items, depending on what is in season and what our Master Chef, Arturo, decides to create.

New American Food in Old Pasadena

What does “New American” mean? Let’s break it down. By “New” we mean modern, unconventional and original, reinventing the traditional by improving upon it. By “American” we mean diverse. Our menu offers some Asian cuisine, Latin cuisine, American classics, and even comfort foods. Our goal is to keep it distinct and fresh while utilizing customary ingredients found in the traditional fare. Our choice of ingredients in both our food and drinks was inspired by the location’s history and the neighborhood of Old Pasadena. Visit our About Us page to get a glimpse into the fascinating history of our building which is over a hundred and fifty years old.

Lindbergh made his historic flight across the Atlantic and a young couple named George and Aurelia Salisbury opened up a little Mexican restaurant on the outskirts of a small town named Los Angeles. That was the historic beginning to the rich tradition that is El Cholo®.

All of the El Cholo® restaurants feature authentic and traditional Mexican dishes, many of which have come from family recipes dating back to 1923.  Our distinctive menu offers classics such as our famous green corn tamales, enchiladas, and sizzling fajitas.  Our combination plates along with newer comidas especiales and fresh grilled chicken tostadita and tostada compuesta salads have made El Cholo famous along with our irresistible nachos, which were introduced back in the 50’s by a young server named Carmen Rocha. But there is one thing that El Cholo® is especially known for and that is our famous El Cholo® Margaritas!  El Cholo® pioneered the now renown Cuervo 1800 into their secret El Cholo® Margarita Recipe and it has become a "must taste” for visitors to Southern California.

Zagat says, "Akira Hirose is still at "the top of his game" at this Pasadena "classic" where "refined" French-Japanese dishes that are "worth every penny" are served by a "professional" team; the "quiet, intimate" atmosphere's "a little staid" (and "lost in the 1980s") for some, although it remains "great for special occasions or if you're going to the nearby Pasadena Playhouse"; P.S. there's also an "outstanding" prix fixe Sunday brunch."
