Dr. Robbin doesn’t have a website, but the new “healthy” lifestyle spot that has opened on Colorado Boulevard appears to be part of a chain imported from Korea with a focus on eating well.
In a stylish open space, Dr. Robbin manages to have a comfortable atmosphere mixed with modern detail. Dark wood booths separate the room and make it a little warmer than your typical casual and quick dining experience. The menu is a very eclectic blend of Asian and Italian dishes, which includes a wide array of pasta and noodle dishes as well as a selection of pizzas. But there is no sugar, butter or artificial flavors.
Stop in at lunch time, when the menu is 15% off and you’ll find a selection of juices and smoothies (apparently made with housemade yogurt), along with teas, to go with your chosen dish. If you’re in a hurry and don’t want to wait for a freshly baked pizza, it looks like Dr. Robbin also has some ready-made sandwiches available in the counter case. For those that are eating in, there are creamy pastas, curries and an inviting pumpkin soup served in a squash that is perfect for people that like to photograph their food and share it online.
The emphasis on health is a little unclear, but it looks like Dr. Robbin has some sort of health and lifestyle clinic in Korea and has incorporated the healthful aspect of eating into restaurants around the world. LA’s Koreatown neighborhood has already been filling bellies with flavor courtesy of Dr. Robbin and now Pasadena can fill up on everything from salad to gelato with the expansive offerings of Dr. Robbin.
So far, it seems that Dr. Robbin is a hit, thanks to offering a wide variety of dishes. Favorites on Yelp! Include a creamy pasta, affordable pizzas, pumpkin soup, seafood salad and gelato.
It’s also a convenient stop for coffee if you’re looking to switch things up from your usual spot and already seems to be settling into the neighborhood.
