Newport Tan Cang Seafood (Table#1)


Newport Seafood is located in San Gabriel area. Their famous is the lobster house special. This is one dish that you'll find at nearly every table in the house the Newport Lobster consist of sauce of garlic, scallions, black pepper and more. The lobster meat is sweet and tender, infused with the “special” sauce. Even though Newport is known for its seafood, the Bo Luc Lac better known as “shaking beef" the peppery chunks of seared tenderloin. They appeared on a sliced tomatoes and onions and really popped when squeezed with lime and dipped in the dish of salt. Clam Spicy lived up to the name, with juicy bivalves cooked in a briny broth that the chefs amped up with Serrano and Fresno chilies, seeds, veins and all.

Ly Lee opened the original Newport Seafood in 1984 in Santa Ana, sold it in 1989 and opened in San Gabriel in 1996. He and his family followed up with a Rowland Heights outpost in 1999. The second San Gabriel location, which is where we ate, moved down the street two years ago. It occupied the sprawling former home of a Marie Callender’s, and still looks the part, though some of shelf ornaments would have to be considered upgrades.

We can bring wine or champagne and there is a $15 corkage fee.

    Good food, long wait. Thank you Sarah for your efforts and hosting this event. Total cost per person at our table was $36, less than I was expecting. Newport unfortunately doesn't accept reservations so it took us a long time to get our tables. Once seated, our food arrived fast and furious. Lobster was $15/lb and we had two. The King Crab which we didn't have was $45/lb and averaged 8-10 pounds! Enjoyed the clams w/basil which was a first for me. The lobster was good, but not mind blowing... The Dungeness crab was good as well.
