Downtown Grocery In SanJose

Stitcher Jun 19, 2007 07:32 PM

I recently discovered that there is a grocery at 418 South Second Street in San Jose,
Dai-Thanh Super Market. Took a quick look around and it seems there are some real bargains here, like oysters for 49 cents each, live crabs( forget how much). Anyone been there? Comments?

    Dai thanh used to be a regular market for me when it was on my route home (before I moved). I remember last year during dungeness season, live local crabs were $2-3/pound, and one time they had live alaskan king crab. I usually bought my fish, asian greens, other veggies, & fruits here; also the pre-julienned radish & carrot mix as a timesaver for banh mi and salads. And, around tet (lunar new year) this was where I'd get my supply of coconut candy and soursop (guyabano) candy.
