L & L Hawaiian Barbecue Restaurant Review

: The term no-frills is an understatement at this Pasadena location of the very large L & L Hawaiian Barbecue chain. But the food --- all appropriately bargain-priced --- can be quite satisfying. Garlic shrimp are addictive, served with a large portion of rice and macaroni salad. Other items include breaded and pan-fried chicken katsu, mahi mahi with tartar sauce, and the Hawaiian favorite loco moco (thin hamburger patties topped with fried eggs and brown gravy, all served over steamed white rice). Another favorite, saimin, is a flavorful broth filled with noodles and topped with a choice of protein like barbecued chicken, grilled spam or fried shrimp.
