$4.99/lb House Special Crab at Lucky City

Chandavkl | Oct 1, 200508:09 PM

Went back to Lucky City, 415 W. Garvey in Monterey Park. and was surprised by the 10 minute wait at lunch time. Had previously gone for lunch special take out and was a little puzzled by the relatively small number of items on the lunch special menu. However, dining in, I could see why the place is so popular. On the walls are posted in Chinese and English with glossy pictures a number of special items, highlighted by the house special crab at $4.99 per pound. Other specials include squab in lettuce leaf for $4.99, whole chicken for $8.99 and a number of Chiu Chow specialties. The crab was quite large at roughly 3 pounds and are deep fried in garlic, with roasted minced garlic "crumbs" used as a topping. Good though not great tasting, but definitely well worth the price. Other items on the menu are quite good, too.
