Newport Seafood on Las Tunas in San Gabriel.

I seemed to misplace my notes what was the famous dish to get here?

Lobster or Crab, and what preparation, newport seafood, house style, or ginger, or salt and pepper.

    1. Assuming you want something else to eat as well, I would urge you to try the "French-style" beef. And DO NOT ignore the lettuce it's served on - that might be the best part!!

        oo yes. i love this place. and their lobster. and their french-style beef. although i completely ignored the lettuce the last few times i went ><...

          Ok, now you have peeked my interes. I maus t go try this place. What is the "House style" preparation? And the "french style" preparation?

      2. House style lobster is most popular. You can get the crab in the same preparation, which, by the way, is identical (but better executed) than what you'd bet for double the price at Crustacean in BH.
        French style beef is also incredible, and I'm also partial to the house-style fish (deep fried and smothered in a spicy, garlicky sweet sauce).
        You'll also notice a lot of people getting clams (again, house style, which is cooked with basil and galic).

        make sure you save room for eating lots of rice, because you will not want to waste a drop of any of the sauces...

          right on about the house style lobster, the beef, and the clams!

          1. re: tuttifrutti

            agree on all three, house style lobster, beef luc lac and the clams. i also really enjoy the elephant clam cooked two ways, one fried and the other raw with a delicious dipping sauce.

        2. thanks for the tip, on the rest of the stuff. the takeout menu listed a lot of tempting sounding stuff besides the lobster.

          is it the Beef lu lac, you're talking about?

          frog legs,over here, worth a try too?

          and the menu does have a whole section of clam preparations.

          1. Yes, Beef lu lac is the French-style beef.
            Also, their squab is pretty good too. Nice and deep-fried!
