LA Weekly's Description

Consider yourself warned: Pasadena may not be the best destination for the seriously nocturnally inclined - even the Thai restaurants and the coffee shops seem to close early, and after the bars close, the scarily named pan-Asian restaurant Wokcano may be the only thing going downtown. There is, however, decent late-night food just a short drive away, in a tiny Mexican restaurant called Tonny's. The tortillas are thick and handmade; the bright-orange Mexican rice is full of flavor. The drink menu, although alcohol-free, includes frosty liquados made with mango or mamey, and huge, foaming glasses of fresh carrot juice. Tonny's serves what may be my favorite chile verde in town at the moment, a vast plate of fried pork simmered in a tart green puree, and the peppery fried catfish is quite good. The restaurant makes a mean plate of huevos rancheros for those times when an assault to the system is what a body requires, and you can make it meaner with a jolt of the smoky house salsa. Food like this may be commonplace in Koreatown or Wilmington at 3 a.m., but in Pasadena it is practically a miracle.
