Pasco Kitchen & Lounge Restaurant Review: Most restaurants near the University of Arizona cater to the tastes of the college crowd with quick and inexpensive fare. But not Pasco, where chef Ramiro Scavo cooks up dishes with a bit more style and without sacrificing fun. The andouille sausage corn dog is a prime example, the kind of option to please kids no matter their true age. Scavo also has a way with pork, demonstrated by the banh mi comprising slow-cooked pork belly, hoisin sauce and a tangy house-made slaw stuffed into a soft baguette. You’ll find pastas and burgers and steaks as well as chicken and waffles (the waffles are vanilla scented), too. But try one of the chef’s famous tacos, which come with a variety of proteins and are wrapped in tortillas made just blocks away. Cocktails are inspired by the food.
