San DIego and Mussels?

nutrition | Dec 7, 2007 10:17 PM

There is a question about where restaurants can get their supply of ,mussels.
In the last couple of weeks, I have had a couple of dishes of less then good mussles at. my local restuarant.

One nite, they stuck to the shell and got stringy from the fork, when the flesh refused to let go . I have never seen this before and wondered what might be the cause. The next time they were even smaller and didn't look that healthy with some having a greyish color. The explanation I got was there was a problem getting the usual local supply, so they had to go to several different suppliers all over the country.

Tonite, I asked at another favorite spot, if the source of their mussels on the menu was still providing them. And the answer was positive. So now, I have come to the point, that I do not feel like ordering mussels anymore and /or find other restaurants with a better supply.

Do you know of any places, that have nice fresh plump fleshy mussels prepared in a nice broth?
