Best Pasadena take-out?

I'm new to area. Can anyone recommend some great Pasadena take-out? I love the Holly Street Market but don't want to grab dinner there EVERY night. I'm open to all kinds of food. Also, anyone know of any good sushi in Pasadena?
Thanks.

    1. I'm fairly new to the area as well, but so far I'd recommend:

      Daisy Mint - The panang curry w/Japanese pumpkin is great, as is the pad see ewe. I suspect the whole menu is good, but I haven't tried enough of it yet.

      Mediterranean Cafe - Great wraps, falafel and garlic sauce, but closes at 7:00.

      Zankou Chicken - A local chain, similar to Mediterranean Cafe, but bigger and open later.

      The Luggage Room - Thin-crust, non-traditional pizzas, and pretty delicious salads.

      If you don't mind a short drive down the 210, Zelo Gourmet Pizza in Arcadia is delicious, and travels well.

        Daisy Mint. In addition to what BearCity suggested, I recommend the Salmon Curry, the Daisy Noodles (amazing curry on those noodles!), and the crab cream cheese wontons. YUM!

      2. Thanks for suggestions Robert and Clyde. I will try out one of them tonight!

        1. Lemonade will have plenty of choices for you to take out!

          1. Thanks BearCity and Crystaw! i have weeks of delicious take-out ahead of me. Going for Daisy Mint tonight.
