Another very popular Instagrammer, @veganvixenla, recently came to our Pasadena location for her perfect rainy day vegan lunch: Tofu Tikka Masala, Gobi Aloo, and Chapati! "This was the first place I had ever tried Indian food over a decade ago, and I'm so happy that they now advertise having several vegan options on their menu!"

For The Lassi Lover

While many think of mango as the flavor of all lassis, there are actually other varieties that are very popular in their own right. At All India Cafe in Pasadena and Glendale, we serve mango lassi, sweet lassi, and masala lassi. Here's a breakdown...

Our sweet lassis infuse homemade yogurt with rosewater, but other varieties can include fruit juices like strawberry or lemon instead of rosewater. Saffron lassis are another sweet option -- these are incredibly popular in Rajasthan and Gujarat in India. Then, of course, there is the mango lassi, which is made with mango pulp. Some mango lassis have added sugar, but at All India Cafe, we prefer to serve a healthy, natural variety and keep our offerings free of unnecessary sugar by using fresh mangoes that are sweet enough on their own.

The masala lassi is mildly spiced, and is an example of traditional lassis that are mild and/or salty. These are also made with our housemade yogurt. Traditionally, lassis are a savory drink -- a simple and refreshing blend of yogurt, water, and spices, which can include cumin.

Lassis have always been most popular eaten with lunch, but can truly be part of any meal. The yogurt is an excellent source of probiotics and healthy bacteria for your gut, which can alleviate many stomach issues. Adding turmeric to one's lassi is an ancient folk remedy for gastroenteritis (also known as the stomach flu). Turmeric combats inflammation, so this remedy is certainly one that can be relied on!

Glendale Community College will open the doors on Thursday to its Sierra Vista building, a roughly $49-million facility designed to streamline student services as well as become the new home for the culinary arts and journalism programs.

At three stories and nearly 95,000 square feet, the building is now the largest on the Verdugo campus. The facility was paid for mostly with state funds, with about 14% coming from the $98-million Measure G bond approved by voters in 2002. Construction began in 2013.
