chinese seafood heaven in {san gabriel}...



While there are definitely foods & restaurants I miss from the East Coast, one thing about food in LA that can't be beat is the manifold of amazing ethnic foods here...especially the variety and authenticity of Asian food. Last week, one of my Chinese friends took me to Newport Seafood in San Gabriel—a restaurant that her family loves for its mix of Vietnamese-inspired Chinese food. That stamp of approval was enough for me to start salivating just thinking about it. My favorites were the fish soup {mild but tart from the addition of pineapple} and their famous lobster dish {a hodge podge of spices & scallions covering a wok-cooked lobster}. They have other non-seafood items too...all tasty and all inhaled in a manner of minutes. — Joy
