It is tucked away on the 3rd floor of a plaza, overshadowed by the very popular ramen joint (Orocho) next door.

Maison Akira (Pasadena)

By in 02: Pasadena, Favorite Food Entries

Finally tried this French + Japanese fusion restaurant Maison Akira on Green St. in Pasadena! We passed by it almost daily for 4 years while we attended ArtCenter, but for some reason we never step in there once. Why?
