Pasadena restaurant has two branches in Kaohsiung. One is a French restaurant on Heti Road and one branch is an Italian restaurant on Chinghai Road.
The Pasadena restaurants both have a bakery. The bakery has a large selection of breads, cakes and biscuits to choose from. The award-winning Walnut and Dried Longan Bread is very famous and popular. The restaurants uses high quality ingredients along with very a friendly and helpful service. The setting is very comfortable and relaxed.
At the Italian, the squid ink pasta is about NT$250. Other dishes on the menu include Saffron Seafood Stew with Rice and Pumpkin and Spinach Gnocchi. Prices range from NT$220 to NT$500 per dish.
The Pasadena Group encourages their chefs to personally go to the farms and to make relationships with the farmers. They believe that this helps the chefs to become more familiar with the ingredients. I would say they definitely create what they set out to do, which is to create a fine dining experience, with a comfortable relaxed feel to it.
