There’s new fast casual life coming to Pasadena tomorrow, with the arrival of the ever-expanding TLT Food. The new location sits near the Pasadena Playhouse on El Molino Avenue, and debuts tomorrow at 11 a.m.

TLT Food is the next iteration of what was originally The Lime Truck, one of Los Angeles’s early (and most popular) food trucks. Since then, TLT Food has expanded into locations that include Westwood and Irvine, with a Newport Beach outpost also on the line. A Downtown location was open briefly before closing a while back.

This new Pasadena iteration will keep much the same look and feel as the others, which means sleek interior design and some pops of neon green. You’ll also find much the same menu of chef Daniel Shemtob's rich favorites like short rib hash fries, tacos, nachos, and more, plus options for craft beer and wine.

TLT Food Pasadena opens tomorrow, keeping daily hours thereafter from 11 a.m. to at least 9 p.m.. Those hours expand Thursday through Wednesday until 11 p.m.
