Great quality food can be hard to come by at your usual franchise restaurants. Edwin Mills by Equator has been family owned and ran for 25 years. We take pride in serving recipes we created in-house over years of experimentation and research. For example, our Potato Wrapped Snapper is a favorite: snapper grilled and wrapped in fried potato shavings on top of mashed sweet potato and drizzled with our sweet chili sauce. We also love our Oodles of Noodles which is our version of a Pad Thai dish–we call it “California style”. Our Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb, beef and potatoes and is hearty and delicious. Those are only some of the popular favorites among our regulars. Check out our Menus Page to find out more about what our restaurant offers. We have a variety of options because we’ve had a very long time to perfect each of these recipes. And we are constantly adding new items depending on what’s in season and what inspires our Master Chef, Arturo.
What does “New American” mean? Let’s break it down. By “New” we mean modern, unconventional and original, reinventing the traditional by improving upon it. By “American” we mean diverse. Our menu offers some Asian cuisine, Latin cuisine, American classics, and even comfort foods. Our goal is to keep it distinct and fresh while utilizing customary ingredients found in the traditional fare. Our choice of ingredients in both the food and drinks are inspired by the location’s history and the neighborhood of Old Pasadena. Visit our About Us page to get a glimpse into the fascinating history of our building which is over a hundred and fifty years old.
