Escuela Taqueria's been long in the works in Old Town, but things started cooking up late last week when Steven Arroyo's casual concept opened quietly in Old Town Pasadena's One Colorado. Offering a similar menu of tacos, from poblano chiles, carne asada, pork ribs, and carnitas, the bill of fare extends to some such oddities as marinaded jidori chicken, lobster, branzino and langostino. Also, consider the burritos, stuffd with chicken tinga or shrimp, and a small selection of plates and salads. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
