Maine Lobster, Cantonese Flair

It seems that hounds have been craving Chinese-style crustacean lately. Melanie Wong raves about the lobster lo mein at R & B Seafood, while stanbee does the same for King Sing's version.

At R & B, the silky, wide noodles come "crowned with a good-sized fresh New England lobster stir-fried with ginger and scallions," Melanie says. Live seafood is a specialty here, and very well-priced: The lo mein is $12.95. Another must-order: giant clam/queen's clam/surf clam ($5.95), "tender and bursting with the sweet flavor of freshness." That, and garlic, soy sauce, and scallions. At King Sing, the lobster is served with thin noodles and a lighter ginger-scallion sauce.

If you'd rather have lobster your way, gordon wing spotted Maine lobsters for $6.99/pound at the 99 Ranch supermarket in Richmond.
