He was born in 1915.” “I… want to be somewhere… for the Pasadena community to [bring] their kids to. I want to see my customers more than once or twice a week,” confesses Cam.

So when she got pregnant with the first of her two kids she decided to be a stay at home mom. Cooking became a major focus for her, both for health reasons and as a bonding activity with her younger daughter. As her children grew, her focus widened to her local surroundings. She realized San Gabriel was filled with restaurants that heavily relied on MSG and didn’t insist on making dishes the right way. So, despite her family’s trepidations, Cam, her husband, and her children opened Green Zone in San Gabriel.
