Boiled peanuts anywhere in NYC???

I was down in Savannah, GA recently and discovered boiled peanuts. Is there anywhere to get them in New York City? Or are there ways of making your own? Finding raw, unroasted peanuts is the challenge. Any ideas?

  1. I have found raw peanuts in chinatown, but I don't remember where it was. I will wrack my brain.

    1. not in Manhattan, but they are served at Queen's Hideaway in Greenpoint.

      1. Raw peanuts are sold all over Chinatown at many of the vegetable stands.

        1. I order them from Nuts Online. They are cheap and taste close enough to the kind boiled in an oil barrel at the gas station to make me happy.

          1. Thanks! I guess I could've just done a search on "boiled" or "bald" (as you southerners DO say in Georgia) here and found the answers. I guess I'm not alone in this quest!


            1. You can get them in YOUR mailbox in NYC and they are identical to those deep south roadside stands. Go to www.peanutguy.com

                1. try southern manhattan

                  1. You might also try Japanese restaurants. I have eaten at some sushi places (in California) that serve boiled peanuts as a start to the meal.

                      Goober Peas: Boiled in Brooklyn uses only fresh "green" peanuts and boils them locally in small batches. You can order through the website or stop by the booth at the Brooklyn Flea.
