Boston Lobster has solid Chinese food across the board. But you’re coming to this San Gabriel stripmall spot for one thing: the house special lobster. This massive dish is stacked with at least a hundred pounds of noodles, green onions, and garlic, and topped with an aquarium’s worth of fresh lobster. It comes to the table as a giant pile of all those ingredients, and it tastes incredible. Driving anywhere for just one dish might feel aggressive, but when it comes to Boston Lobster, you and your crew will not be disappointed.
