|Yujean Kang calls it quits in Pasadena|
After 21 years in Pasadena, Yujean Kang's closed on July 22. According to Eater, Kang said that the economy and raising rents are the cause. Kang opened this location in 1991, bringing haute and traditional Chinese dishes like "Pictures in Snow," a soup topped with snow-white meringue with little dioramas made out of carved vegetables to Old Town. This closure goes with the changing tide of Pasadena, with new restaurants getting better and chains still pulling people in. Kang says he'll take some time off to "regain his vision about food" and perhaps make a comeback somewhere else in town.
