Where can i find decent priced king crab legs in LA?

Last weekend i purchased some at my local stater bros for 10.99 per pound and they were really good but im sure i could find some even fresher in a specialty market? Any one know of a place? something not horribly expensive (i went to neptunes net earlier this month and they were 25 a pound and they didnt even look fresh,what the hell?) im in the Downey area by the way.

      Even better at Vons is the 5-9 size at $9.99/lb.

    2. Not sure if you have a big Japanese market in Downey, but I saw them at the Mitsuwa in Downtown for a good price. Maybe in the 7-8 range.

      1. If there is a Costco in your area the weekend Seafood Roadshow has crab legs at a good price.

        1. I don't believe you'll have much luck looking for "fresher" legs. Those available here are almost invariably frozen. But I second the Costco option. Their legs are huge and well priced. Check availability though, I think they only offer them every other weekend. At least I think that's true of the Van Nuys Costco.

          1. Third Costco. Only on weekends though.
