Dinner at Elite Restaurant in Monterey Park. Place was empty. 2 other tables besides us.
Conch and chicken soup
Squab. Always good
Typhoon style lobster. 4 lb Maine lobster. Cooked so perfect that the meat was succulent and tender. This convinces you that anyone who says larger lobsters aren’t tender just don’t know how to cook lobster.
Salt and pepper pork chops. Simple but so well done and so flavorful.
Loofa with konyaku noodles, wood ear mushrooms, and sausage. This was new for us and wow was it good. Loofa was the thin kind with ridges and a bit crisp and a bit sweet. The broth was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Not pictured was an egg white fried rice with dried scallops. Excellent.
Total damage was $225 with the lobster being 1/2 the price.
Dinner really is better than dim sum.
