Grand opening of Roy’s in Pasadena
Tiki torches, hoola dancers clad in grass skirts, exotic spices, and fresh seafood straight from the Pacific. I’m sure you are picturing a warm, sandy beach-front eatery somewhere in Hawaii. Instead, that is what set the backdrop for a fun-filled evening of island food and festivities at the opening of Roy’s in Pasadena, CA.
Tropical cocktails slid down martini ice sculptures, while beautiful fresh fish overflowed at the sushi bar. My favorite was the sweet and creamy lobster roll with bright orange tobiko.
Oh yes, and of course Roy’s signature butterfish that simply melts in your mouth!
It might not be a seaside vacation in Hawaii, but it is as close as you can get to authentic Hawaiian cuisine without spending six hours on a plane!! Treat yourself to a ‘day away’ in Pasadena!
