5/605 freeways

i will be attending a seminar in garden grove for a couple of days, and my wife and i would like to find a couple of places halfway between pasadena and garden grove to meet for dinner. looking at a map, midway is near the 5 and 605 freeways - not an area that we normally frequent. would love some suggestions.

      not much choice in that area, you may want to meet in long beach or aretesia/cerritos for more choices.

        There's a Pepe's right near the 5/605 interchange. Great tacos and burritos.

          Golden Triangle in Whittier for Burmese fare.

            Can Coon Thai. Alondra off of 605, just south of the 5.
            it's worth at LEAST 2 meals. message me if you need full translations.

            there's also a half decent fish taco joint there: Senor Baja (11833 Alondra Blvd Norwalk, CA) but it certainly isn'ta destination
