Newport Seafood in San Gabriel

Went for dinner courtesy of a friend. line out to wazoo, but got in after just 30 minutes of wait (we were grateful!).

started with a tofu and seafood soup. had shrimp, squid, and fish cakes in it, as well as cabbage and tofu in a delicious clear broth.

then came the basil clams. Oh, the sauce! i love ladling a spoonful on my rice and tasting the spicy, fragrant clam sauce.

deep fried softshell crab was next, with a fish sauce for dipping. great crunchy batter/shell balanced nicely with the delicate but meaty crab. heavenly!

the piece de resistance, lobster in house special garlic-chili sauce, was absolutely divine! fresh, succulent lobster slathered in the savory-spicy sauce was just what the doctor ordered for my hungry bowels.

catfish braised in soysauce/chili was also delicious. the tender flesh just melted in my mouth.

a side of ong choy rounded out the meal.

all in all, a great meal, although the service was definitely hurried and unfriendly. it was worth it, to taste the food!!!
