Langosta Lounge Asbury Park, NJ
After a few hours elapsed we decided to move onto dinner. I, still being rather full, decided to go with sushi. Who am I kidding, I was going with sushi all along because it is the best there. I always get the same couple rolls, Gidget roll, which has crispy coconut shrimp and veggies inside and the Dynamite roll, which has lobster, mango and avocado tempura fried topped with a sweet spicy sauce. I like the different textures in the sushi. It really wakes up your mouth when you bite into the soft layer of rice to find the crunchy encased fish on the inside, great combination. I was lucky to be sitting next to my friend who ordered the Hali'iimaile Rigatoni, as I would take fork fulls while she was watching the band. This dish, although I can not pronounce it, was amazing. Shrimp and scallops tossed with asparagus and a luscious cilantro, macadamia nut pesto cream sauce. Heaven! I will be back next week to get it! Also delicious, and to my other side, my friend had the Chu Chee Curry. Most of the choices on the menu come with the option of chicken, vegetarian or fish, which is great for the non meat and seafood eaters. The Chu Chee Curry was very simple, healthy and delicious. It included fresh vegetables, like squash, zucchini, asparagus, served over quinoa laced in a green coconut curry broth. The crunch of the perfectly cooked vegetables, mixed with the buds of quinoa, and coated ever so perfectly with the creamy, but light, coconut sauce. Delicious, and you won't even feel guilty afterwords.
It was a great night out with great friends, great fare, and great tunes. It is definitely going to be a long fun Summer with many visits to Langosta Lounge. Located directly on the boardwalk they offer outdoor seating with an excellent view of the beach and a great place to sit back and people watch. Perfect location to view the fireworks in Asbury Park every Wednesday night.
