Affascinare by Romas.

Affascinare is Italian for "Charmed".  It's the perfect word for this little spot in Pasadena on Lake Avenue. It's an Italian market called Roma Italian Deli and Grocery. If you go, make sure to talk to Rosario, he makes the sandwiches and he'll make sure you find what you're looking for. He also makes the incredible bread.

When we lived in Orange County, we always joked about the lack of  unique spots to eat, everything was a chain and it was usually for a "gringo" palate. Not much spice, taste or fun. Since we've been in Pasadena, we've found a few little spots that we really enjoy. Roma Market is one of those places. It has so much PERSONALITY. It's nice to experience authentic culture and cuisines.
