Rate-A-Restaurant #247: Little Flower Candy Co.
Restaurant: Little Flower Candy Co.
Location: 1422 W. Colorado (Pasadena)
Type of restaurant: Candy/Sandwiches
We stipulated: We were looking to take Blogger Kid and Blogger Toddler 2.0 to a park near the Pasadena/Eagle Rock border when the idea of the Little Flower Candy Co. came up.
They stipulated: Writes candy maker Christine Moore: "My goal has always been to make FRESH CANDY with quality ingredients. The support of the Los Angeles food community has always been outstanding and has helped this little candy kitchen grow so that more people can eat good, fresh candy. No hydrogenated oils, no shelf life extenders or artificial ingredients, hand made with love and a passion for quality and freshness."
What we ordered: Dal bowl (Brown rice, curried cauliflower, garlic spinach, chutney, tofu, raita and yellow lentil dal -- $8.50)
Curried chicken sandwich (Curried chicken, grapes, almonds, apricot chutney, romaine lettuce, Ciabatta bread -- $8.50)
High point: Great flavors on the sandwiches, while the candy we selected -- homemade marshmallows -- were fantastic.
Low point: The items in the bowl weren't together and were a bit hard to mix up without making a mess.
Overall impression: Great neighborhood place to grab a sandwich, or high-end salted caramels, before heading to the nearby park.
Chance we'll go back: Yes, very good chance.
