Possible real fish monger at Food World- Durham, NC

Had a great experience buying very fresh fish today in Food World at the corner of Fayetteville street and Lakewood, just off of Rt 147 across from the Bulls ball park closer to NCCU. This market is quickly becoming a personal favorite. Food World is a huge market with a blend of Asian food, hispanic food and good ol' Eggos/Tide/toilet paper type goods. Tons of really interesting foods, fresh and frozen, that I have no idea what they are because I can't read the lables. The prices are great on produce and other items I find in the major groceries and the store is a treasure chest. Sure the neighborhood is shady and the place isn't spic 'n span, but it works.

On to the fish...

So, in the back corner, there is a fish guy running his own little department inside the grocery. The fish looked great. I checked the eyes, poked the flesh and gave them a sniff- all tested great. I bought some whole Black Bass which he de-scaled and cut the filets off. It tasted fantastic. He said his fish comes from Moorehead and Wilmington.

There is also a great little Tacqueria inside which I will try soon and give a report.
