Buying sushi grade fish in Atlanta

m

I frequent the Dekalb Farmer's market and am a fan of their seafood department in general, but I don't know enough about fresh fish to consider their fish "sushi grade" or not.

Does anyone know of a good fish market in Atlanta that offers sushi grade fresh fish?

    Super H Mart in Duluth. They have a website, but... well, let's just say good luck with the website! :-) John Kessler of the AJC highly recommends this place as THE place to get high quality fish in Atlanta.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I'm rarely in Duluth, but this might be worth the drive on a lazy weekend.

        I agree, it's not really convenient for me either. It's not too far off I-85, so it's rather accessible from anywhere, just highway miles. If you're looking for good fish, it's worth the drive... with a cooler of course!

      Super H Mart's got lots of other great stuff apart from the fish: good meat, great frozen dim sum type dumplings, prepared Korean foods, etc. The independent vendors within the market include Mozart Bakery, dumpling and sushi stands, and puffed and pounded rice sweets (like mochi, but Korean). Typically lots and lots of samples to try, especially on the weekends.

      Although it's not too far off the freeway it is very close to Gwinnet Mall (or Square or whatever) and traffic can get pretty backed up, especially around this time of year. It generally takes me longer to get back on I-85 than it takes me to drive all the way back to my home (which is way, way inside the perimeter).
