Typical Wednesday nights around Pasadena City College are quiet. After 8 p.m., the stillness of the streets is usually only disturbed by the occasional honk or loud music bellowing from a car. This Wednesday night was not like every other night.
Zankou’s: chicken, shawerma, and secret garlic sauce
On a recent Wednesday, Zankou’s Chicken was filled with students, professionals and a mother with three children enjoying a variety of Mediterranean foods. This is not a place for quiet contemplation, but a hive of activity as patrons come and go, laugh at jokes or talk business over meals of meat, garlic sauce and pita bread while world music plays in the background.
