    Holy Fish Sticks!!

    i've been looking for a quality seafood market lately so I can feed my Catholic wife on Fridays during Lent. i got a hot tip about a live seafood market in the Cambodia Town area of Long Beach (yes, there are even city-posted signs indicating it is indeed called Cambodia Town. Largest Cambodian population outside Cambodia in fact!) and i finally made it over there for the first time. Holy, holy fish sticks, friends, it is the real deal. if it swam in the sea they had it. they'll even clean, gut, and fry your whole fish purchase for an extra 50 cents a pound. i picked up three whole red snappers and 2-pounds of fresh shrimp that I'll be cooking up tonight. yee haw.

    for youse in SoCal it's located at 1436 Cherry Ave, Long Beach 90813. usadailyliveseafood.com

    Now that's a fish monger.


      That’s just like what we have here in Colorado!!! ... minus the variety ... ... and the freshness ... ... ... and the fish. We do however, have some kind of local oysters (from the mountains, I hear) that are not only fresh but also MUCH larger than what you poor coast-dwellers haul out of the Pacific.

        ItsAllGoneToTheDogs - I will admit that there are some excellent sushi places around here. Go figure ... but I'm not complaining.

        Ok, at my old job, we visited our cow farmer. An operation didn’t go well and the farmer had to redo it while we were all there. Farmer finishes his coffee, puts it in the cup. We get back in the truck and he he heads me the cup and says, “here, hold my balls”. We get back to the house and sauté in garlic butter. It wasn’t that bad. Doubt I’ll ever eat it again, but I can say that I have.

      Houston also has multiple fish markets just like that. Ours are either Chinese of Vietnamese. Most of them stink to high heaven, also got to be leery of what you are buying. First ask if whatever it is is fresh and never frozen. You may have to press the point but they have to tell you. If previously frozen you need to cook it that day. Ask to smell, see the gills, are the eyes on the fish clear. Other than that you can really get some good buys, just be careful !!


        Do not touch signs all over maybe take a fishing rod with.


          Looks like a great shop.

          Unlike these guys:



          Very nice. We just do not have a place like that in our area.


            Gentle reminder, Off Topic channel is for anything off the topic of food, cookers, and cooking. If you put it in your mouth, cook on it, or cook with it, we probably have a channel for it.


              latenight71 check out HMart on Del Amo and I think Pioneer. Take the del amo exit and turn right.


                Great tip! May be time for a road trip.


                  Who knew? My office used to be at cherry and willow.

                  Is curlys still there?

                  For the beer lovers out there: https://wynkoop.com/brewery/brew-blo...-oyster-stout/

                  What started as a gag by a local craft brewery (Wynkoop) became a thing. It's actually good ... probably because it tastes nothing like its namesake. Only available from stores in a two-pack:

                  Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
