Not a lot of options in Pasadena. You might get more responses on the Kosher Board but you can make quick stops at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
Not really that close to Pasadena but La Gondola, on Wilshire near Crescent Heights, is a meat Italian restaurant. Magic Carpet, on Pico near La Cienega, is a very good meat Yemenite restaurant (the melawach is a must order).
Shamash.com has a Kosher restaurant database. http://www.shamash.com/kosher/
