It’s a Broth Bonanza at Old Pasadena’s Slick New Bone Kettle

The restaurant opens February 28

Pasadena is on the verge of its first-ever bone broth restaurant, with next week’s arrival of Bone Kettle to Raymond Avenue. The modern newcomer has been in the works for quite some time, but will officially turn on the lights for service as of Tuesday, February 28.

Bone Kettle is the work of Erwin Tjahyadi, the lead culinary mastermind behind Komodo. Whereas Komodo started with a big-flavor ethos as a food truck and eventually a brick and mortar restaurant, Tjahyadi has found himself simplifying his Southeast Asian flavors for his upcoming Pasadena debut. No pho-inspired burritos, just broth-y bowls of noodles, simple salads, and some meat. You can find the full opening menu here.

The space itself is right on trend, with lots of natural light up front and plenty of blond wood and Nordic vibes. The restaurant is meant to be a casual offering for Old Pasadena, with bar seating up front and more composed two and four-tops spreading through to the back.

Bone Kettle officially opens for business on February 28, keeping dinner hours only to start. You can make a reservation online, or swing through Tuesday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., with an early arrival of 4 p.m. for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
