Lowest price- Spot Prawns

Hey Hounders,
Just came back from Vancouver and had some really great spot prawns for $6.99/lb.
I want some more! Does anyone know where I can get spot prawns? And what's the going price for these suckers?
I'm willing to travel.

  1. Your first place to check should probably be 99 Ranch Market (various locations). Their prices are generally the best for seafood items.

    1. For cook at home:
      99 Ranch has the big ones for around $17.99 a pound
      Arcadia Supermarket and HK Supermarket also had them for around the same price.

      For restaurant:
      A month or so ago, I went to New Capital Seafood, and they were having a special at $1 a pound (of course, they only give you about 1/2 to 3/4 pound for $1). There was a limit on how much you could order depending on how big your party was.

      Full House in Arcadia generally sells them for around $20 a pound.
