You Want Excellent Chinese Food, Manch?

Are those spot prawns, which are often like 19.99+ per pound, or are those the “small sweet shrimp” which can be found for 7.99 per pound?


#726

Definitely spot prawns. Shell says it all.


#727

What? These are spot prawns which are NEVER that cheap as 19.99. More like 28.99 and above…


#728

Exactly! @aalj let me know where they sell them at 19.99 now…


#729

Were these prawns fresh and swimming?


#730

Of course @manch …where have you been…


#731

I am not that into seafood. So where’s da best shop to buy swimming prawns? Any shop on Stockton?


#732

Mostly centralized on the block of Stockton and Pacific, southwest corner I believe. Yes, swimming prawns. I actually had some luck this time buying from a place on Irving. Seafood galore. Geoduck, live fish, crab…


#733

This is an HK-identity violation. Priveleges are now revoked, :wink: :wink:


#734

Yeah. I normally buy from sunset super on vicente or Irving, and then kick myself when I find seafood cheaper on Stockton,


#735

It might have been 22.99. I know I have seen 28.99 at R99, sunset super, and seafood centre and Sun May Wah on Clement, and then subsequently kicked myself when I saw it cheaper on Stockton.


#736

For that price you can get lobster, crab, filet mignon…


#737

Indeed, but those are not as sweet and succulent and as satisfying as live spot prawns, unless you are talking about live australian lobster, but that is usd 48 / lbs.


#738

Live Maine lobster is the best, often seen for $9.99…Crab $3.99 -$8.99…Prawns 5.99 and up

For me nothing beats live Dungeness crab fresh caught off the SF coast…steamed and eaten warm…

If you want good fresh fish catch your own…Salmon are biting

IIRC I bought some at 24.99 a few weeks ago…I hate buying them in Chinatown though because by the time I get home some are dead.

Btw why do we sound like a bunch of C9s?? :expressionless:


#740

Call me crazy but I prefer spot prawns over lobster…


#741

I prefer crab. Then steak and lobster but only Maine live lobster. Lobster from warm water is no bueno


#742

I like this crab:

That’s right, they don’t sell this kind here :disappointed:


#743

Those little crabs are too much work. I like the biggest Dungeness I can find 2lbs min.

I use special heat rated rubber gloves to remove from the pot. I clean them while hot and serve immediately

Steamed is best . Boiled is easier


#744

These crabs look poisonous. :skull_and_crossbones:
