Fantastic Armenian within 20 min drive of Pasadena?
Is there any?
A friend of mine is coming from out of town and I don't know where to take her, besides Caroussel. What's worth a drive for a tourist from out of town?
Persian Armenian, wonderful food...

oh no! Don't take her to Burger Continental when there are so many excellent places. Elena's Greek Armenian (mentioned below) is wonderful but really casual. If you want a nicer atmosphere I did like Raffi's, that's supposed to be Persian-Armenian but it seemed more Armenian to me.
There's also the strip of Armenian bakeries and stores up on Washington between Allen/Hill if you wanted to add a snack.
