Where to buy abalone in OC?

Anyone know of a place where I can purchase fresh abalone in Orange County? I want to take some back east to my dad as a surprise. I know it's rare, but any suggestions would be appreciated! Thaks in advance.

  1. I don't know any exact location, but I might try a Japanese market like Mitsuwa or Marukai. I have seen some fresh ones there in the shell.

    1. I've also seen them fresh in the shell (albeit the smaller 3 to 4 inch ones) at the Korean supermarkets, Arirang and Hannam on Garden Grove Blvd between Magnolia and Brookhurst.
