It’s no secret that Pasadena isn’t quite flush with Jews. That might be related to the fact that the Hebrews were banned from living in the place until more recent times, but who can really know.

Fortunately, the Pasadena Sandwich Company is there to at list fill part of the niche of the Jewish deli.
