Koko’s Mediterranean Café, or more commonly known as Med Café by all the locals, has been a Pasadena gem for over 20 years. Founded by head chef Koko and his family, Mediterranean Café serves authentic Mediterranean cuisine with Armenian and Lebanese flare. They specialize in mouthwatering shawarma and kebabs, and sides like hummus, tabbouleh, falafel, tzatziki, just to name a few. The garlic and hot sauces are also to die for. There are plenty of options for vegetarian and vegan diets as well.
