Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park
by Jersey Bites - Restaurant Reviews

langostarita

 

I am sorry this review is coming so late.  Jersey Bites was having some technical difficulties over the past week but we’re back and ready to talk about the absolutely fantastic meal we had at Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park.

 

pu pu platter at Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park

 

I don’t know what I was thinking or expecting, but I was completely taken off guard by their menu.  For some reason, after my brunch at Langosta Lounge during Jersey Shore Restaurant Week,  I had the impression it was a Mexican restaurant.  I hadn’t taken the time to look at their regular menu, so the “Langostarita” pictured here with fresh lime, triple, and tequila with a splash of ruby red grapefruit (delicious) and the “Breakfast Burrito” had shaped my first impression.

But, oh, this restaurant is so much more.  After my last visit, I walked away thinking what a great Thai restaurant and Chinese restaurant, and Jamaican, and North African and lets not forget Hawaiian and  Japanese.   This place is all over the map, literally.  After taking a closer look at Langosta Lounge’s menu and their self-prescribed mission to bring  “Vacation Inspired Cuisine from the places we go and the passionate people and cultures which shape them.” I got it.  What a fun idea in fact.    Why didn’t I think of that?  Oh, because I never go anywhere, that’s why.  Well, now I’ve got the next best thing, dinner at Langosta Lounge.

We started our culinary tour with the Pu Pu Platter, a very popular item that night and most nights I’m told.  Everywhere you looked you could see the flicker of the mini hibachi grills.  As described on the menu, the Pu Pu Platter is “a fun and kitschy assortment of coconut shrimp, baby back ribs, Asian chef’s veggie choice, barbecue wings and skewered tropical fruit steak — served with chile lime sauce.”  It was delicious and perfect for 4 people to share.

 

tuna at Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park

 

We all ordered off of the specials menu for dinner.  I think I ended up somewhere in Cambodia with my dinner.  The Tuna dish you see here was served on fresh banana leaves and mounds of fresh veggies.  Unfortunately, I was so busy tasting and taking pictures, I did not take notes on the ingredients.  I do apologize.  This lazy reporter figured I’d find more on their website, but when you order off of the specials menu this is a risky move.  But hey, pictures are worth a thousand words right?

Trust me when I tell you that you need to get to Asbury Park and give Langosta Lounge a try.

Tip: I hear their fried Olives are to die for.  Here’s a link to their extensive menu but be prepared for some fabulous specials as well.

And, please remember to tell them Jersey Bites sent you.
