King Lobster Palace is a Chinese restaurant in Orange. It's from the same mold as those eateries that seem to exist on every corner of every neighborhood in the San Gabriel Valley. Groups of families gather around tables with lazy Susans crammed with dishes. Frail-looking Chinese grannies, tykes barely old enough to chew and everybody in between eat together, enjoying one another's company and, of course, the food. Try the House Special Lobster, which is as easy to eat as it is expensively delicious.
