Im invited to a Super Bowl Party on Sunday. Im making the trip from Manhattan Beach to Sierra Madre on Super Bowl Sunday. 105 E to 110 N to 5 N to 2 E to 134 E.. Okay get out the mapquest. Last time I brought 2 boxes of Beard Papas cream puffs. Any suggestions, Im at a loss. Either sweets or an appetizer any suggestions would be cool..
Egg Rolls from Lemongrass in Eagle Rock. Little fried, very yummy. I had them for an xmas party and they were the first thing to go. If you exit Colorado off the 2 it will be past Eagle Rock Blvd on your right. Keep going east on Colorado to get onto the 134 freeway. Or on that same route is the Italian Bakery, they have excellent cookies and pastries. Keep in mind the bakery closes at 1pm on Sunday
Lemon Grass Vietnamese Restaurant
1952 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles - (323) 258-8050
Eagle Rock Italian Bakery & Deli
1726 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles - (323) 255-8224
The pie at Phillipes is pretty good. Of course, the sandos are their calling card, but the pies ain't too bad. You could exit the 110 at Hill I believe. Right before Dodger Stadium.
Hot Wings from Robin's BBQ in Pasadena might be an option. It's right off the 210 fwy (Rosemead exit) on the way to Sierra Madre and they'll do a big tray of them that transports well.
PS - it's up to you but I would take the 110 fwy N and exit Orange Grove. Left on Orange Grove and take it north to the 210 fwy East on ramp. Very easy and takes you right past the Tournament of Roses House.
I don't know what time Petros in MB opens....but there are several very nice Greek appetizers there. I think they have a menu online....
