A perfect San Gabriel lunch, all along Main/Las Tunas

Newport Seafood on Las Tunas for some frield garlic, fish sauce, scallions, wok fried lobster. with some french beer and of course the bo la lac (filet mignon medallions with a peppery sauce, almost au poivre-like).

Followed by some dumplings and a diet coke or two, from Luscious Dumplings.

Then head off to the Stuffed Sandwich for a few Belgian beers (as of right now the Belgians are on tap).

And afterwards by late afternoon, head off to Fosselman's for a triple scoop of taro, chocolate rasberry mousse ice cream, and english toffee. wow, oh, and possibly licorice if they have it.

Then loosen the proverbial belt.

now i'm getting hungry.

      maybe 11 bucks but it's so worth it, and enough for two to share. lots of beef.

      the lobster on the other hand is very expensive but worth it too.

      That rocks. This is my kind of outing... and everyone wonders why I workout so hard.

        Are you kidding?

        We stopped by Luscious Dumplings last night, with the intention of going to Fosselman's for dessert.

        After a few (well, maybe more than a few) of the juicy soup dumplings I am beyond stuffed.

        A stop at the CVS Pharmacy for some alka-seltzer is more likely.

          Thank you SO much for your help with my weight-loss program, Kevin, especially the bo la lac and the trip to Fosselman's! Even ONE scoop of ice cream is off my agenda...well, okay, maybe just one...chocolate raspberry mousse, yes!
