Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Times.
This week, Jonathan reviews Seafood Palace in the San Gabriel Valley. This Chiu Chow-style restaurant is most famous for their house-special crab, topped with “sliced chiles, chopped scallions and crunchy handfuls of golden fried garlic.”
Recommendations: House-special fried crab; sautéed scallops with asparagus; jalapeño peppers stir-fried with pork; house-special steamed chicken; salted-fish-and-chicken fried rice; Chinese broccoli braised with pork neck and much more.
Locations: 684 West Garvey Avenue, Monterey Park, (626) 289-0088 | Also at 9669 Las Tunas Avenue, Temple City, (626) 286-2299.
Tip: Remember Seafood Village? It’s essentially the same—just given a name change.
