    (Yes, restaurant is spelled wrong in the title)

    I'll be down in La Puente area next week staying at Pacific Palms Resort. I've never been to this area before and figure this would be the best place to find some good eats. Also, looking for a little more upscale restaurant to take my parents to dinner. Thanks.

    To be honest, the area around Palms Resort is pretty crappy. The resort itself is great and has several nice restaurants and two of the best and hardest golf courses in California. You're better off driving to neighboring cities for better restaurants.

    U looking for Asian seafood(ie Chinese food) or American Seafood (ie Joes Crab shack)?

    If you want to do a little driving, about 20 mins away, theres a place called The Boiling Crab. Its located in Orange County. They got crawfish, shrimp, crab, beer etc. Cajun style, eat with ur hands type deal. Lively place as well. Music, sports, ladies(For u, not ur mom). U wont regret it.

    American, but not chain. I'm looking for places that we don't have in Vegas.

    Seafood in that area will not be hard to find. If you drive north on Azusa ave. for about 3 and make a left on Colima, you'll have your choice of seafood for about 5 miles. It's very populated by asian people.

    Another vote for The boiling crab! There's one not too far away in Rowland Heights off of the 60fwy and Nogales. Southwest corner of Nogales and Gale.
