Fish Market in Ctown

9lives | Nov 12, 201106:45 AM

After a great lunch at New Shanghai, it was time to think about dinner...Happy Family?? on Tyler, and a few doors away fro Best Little Restaurant had lobsters for $4.25/lb..boughtt a 1 1/2 lber and it was fantastic.

This place is several cuts above CMart. Beautiful shrimp from the FL gulf, sea urchin from ME, plenty of whole live fish, and some fish bodies which would make a great stock. After some back and forth, I was able to determine the sources. They are justifiably proud of their offerings.

Language wise, their English is comparable to my knowledge of Chinese languages...which is slim.

Fish lovers find a way to communicate...and I highly recommend this shop. I've walked through about 4x and bought twice. They're 2 for 2.

Non Chinese speakers will have a harder time than at Courthouse or New Deal; but that's part of the fun....whelk anyone?
