Los Angeles Restaurants




Cham Review

The name of this restaurant, which translates to "meal for workers," is a healthy fast-casual eatery that takes traditional Korean food and turns it into seasonally driven tasty tapas, stews, and ssam (barbecue and garden platters). Its arrival in charming tree-filled Pasadena signals the areas growing dining culture that is evolving to match the diverse locals who are tired of driving to Hollywood for urban eats. Relaxed and inviting, Cham is a neighborhood spot that is approachable with clean and simple wood furnishing and oversized tables that make for comfy dining. A boutique wine list, craft beers, and Korean cocktails are all handpicked to match the lively flavors of the food. Order the hot chicken or steak bibimbap that arrives with crunchy rice or the barbecue garden platter that comes with meat or vegetables that you can fold into fresh lettuce for a healthy Korean taco-esque nosh.
