Alhambra, California, is full of some of the most exciting dining options in the San Gabriel Valley, from seafood and ice cream to Asian cuisine. Here is a list of the ten best places to eat here, perhaps not all conventional restaurants, but all satisfyingly delicious.
The Boiling Crab
The Boiling Crab is the place to go to for fresh seafood in Alhambra. The warm, Southern hospitality and delicious food make it an inviting place to spend time with family and friends and enjoy crab, oysters, clams and crawfish. Each ‘catch’ is boiled in a Cajun blend of spices and customized with a selection of signature seasonings and spiciness levels. With two locations in Alhambra, a scrumptious seafood dinner is never too far away.
