Okay guys, I'm looking for opinions on the best chinese seafood restaurant either in Chinatown or San Gabriel Valley. In my opinion, overall SGV has far superior chinese restaurants than anywhere else such as Ocean Star, Quanjuudes Beijing Duck, Mei Long Village, Lake Spring, etc... I'm planning on dining oput with my girlfriend tomarrow night and we definitely want to indulge in a whole crab and possibly whole steamed fish, etc... Other delicacies such as jellyfish, tripe, tendon and other chinese prepared offal, etc... would also be wonderful if served by a specific restaurant since they're some of my favorites.
So I appreciate any suggestions you guys can give me that fit my criteria and that you think is fairly reasonable (up to apround $80 for 2) and of superior quality. I've heard good things of NYC Seafood, but have never been. And I've also seen some people on this board talk about a place MPV Seafood. Where is that located and do they have othger things on the menu along with seafood, like some of the delicacies I mentioned? Some still say the crab is best at Mon Kee's and Empress Pavillion, although both are pretty drab feeliong. Overall I'm open to informative suggestions. Thanks.
