Lobster West, located at 765 S. Coast Highway, opened July 11 and already has quite a loyal following.
The lobster tail salad is amazing! It's one of the most simple salads I've ever had with only four ingredients (including the lobster tails), and comes with a delicious butter-based dressing. It's a bit spendy at $16, but the lobster is worth the splurge.
My friend who ordered the colassal lump crab salad ($15) said it was also really good.
For dessert we each tried the "award-winning local Mariposa ice cream" in white chocolate raspberry and peanut butter fudge flavors. Both were a great way to end the meal of salads. Each cup is $4.
