Newport Tan Cang Seafood Restaurant: 99 Essential Restaurants 2011

At Peter Luger, the ancient steakhouse in Brooklyn, the waiters used to be famous for telling customers that they'd be glad to let them see a menu, and they'd be back in a minute to see how they wanted their steak. Newport Seafood is a little like that: There's a long menu, and they're happy to let you study it, but you know and they know that you're going to end up with the beef, luc lac fried pea leaves with garlic, salt-and-pepper squid and then the epic house-special lobster —  a mammoth beast fried with chiles, black pepper and scallion, a dish that will live under your fingernails for weeks. What Newport serves is Southeast Asian–inflected Cantonese food, although as far as I can tell, the owners, natives of Cambodia, haven't quite figured it out, either. Those lobsters, generally five to six pounds apiece at about $15 per pound, are not cheap, but they feed many. 518 W. Las Tunas Drive, San Gabriel. (626) 289-5998, newportseafood.com. Sun.-Thurs., 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Beer and wine. Lot parking. MC, V. Chinese.
