          That's really interesting. If Compare is the place I'm thinking of, you wouldn't know it would be any good just by looking at it. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

            Here's what they said. COMPARE 918 S. Main, Farm. "The L.I.- supermarket chain specializes in Central and South American groceries. Each of the stores has an independent fish vendor. The seafood counter at the Farmingdale store is magnificent, with an immense variety of fish- most of them whole, many of them tropical, at very low prices." Hope this helps.

        2. Second Fairway, but also the H&Y Asian supermarket at corner of South Oyster Bay Road and Old Country Road. Very fresh fish, exceptional prices.
