Trejo’s Cantina Pasadena celebrated its first anniversary on Saturday, July 28, 2018, with champagne, a ribbon cutting, and the presentation of a Certificate of Recognition from the California Legislature to its owner, actor Danny Trejo.
Trejo said he feels “honored and overwhelmed” at the support that Pasadenians have shown for his restaurant. He also shared that a new Trejo’s Cantina will be opening at Terminal 1 (Southwest) at LAX, for which, he teased, there’s a jingle already. To the delight of those listening, he chanted:
“My name is Danny Trejo… I fly Southwest… I eat Trejo’s Tacos… ‘cuz they’re the best!”
The Certificate of Recognition, signed by Assemblymember Chris Holden of the 41st Assembly District, thanked Trejo for his “contribution to our community’s economic growth and diversity,” and wished him continued success.
Present at the event were representatives of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Chief Perez, the Pasadena Chief of Police.
Trejo’s Cantina Pasadena’s menu offers tacos, burritos, bowls, soups, salads, appetizers, and desserts, plus a number of delicious cocktail options, including a tasty Jalapeno Mojito, and a vodka drink called “El Cartel.” When asked what his favorite dish is, Trejo said that he loves the cauliflower taco, although his friends, he joked, would probably prefer him to answer: carnitas!
Trejo’s Cantina Pasadena is located at 37 S. El Molino Ave, adjacent to The Pasadena Playhouse. Find more information and menus here.
