Lobster is almost always on special at this tiny Chiu Chow seafood house in the San Gabriel strip-mall that houses Golden Deli: steamed lobster, lobster cooked with garlic and scallions, lobster in supreme stock, fried lobster with spicy salt. (There is also a small selection of Vietnamese specialties, which you don't want, and crab dishes, which you do.) But the lobster you want is the Newport Special Lobster, sauteed with onions and basil and chiles and enough various other things to impart a love buzz that will last all afternoon.
