Where to buy fresh crawfish in the Philly area?
I'm in the 3rd month of my pregnancy and have such a huge craving for crawfish. Not just crawfish -- I want to boil it in a big pot with corn on the cob New Orleans style! It is crazy because I've never had it that way in my life, but have seen pics of a crawfish boil online and it just makes me drool.
Can anyone help a pregnant woman out and tell her where to find fresh/live crawfishes in the Philly area? I think they are in season now, or will be soon? I don't think the frozen ones will taste any good in the kind of boil I want to do. So far I've been somewhat satisfying my craving by eating them at a Chinese buffet in Northeast Philly... but I want the fresh ones!
Thanks so much.
Call Ippolitos at 13th and Dickenson. If they don't have them they will get them for you within 48 hours!
That is a tough one. I haven't bought fresh for a few years but if memory serves me right, It is very seasonal. Hills Seafood used to get it in late Winter/early Spring (I could be wrong. I remember doing a bit of research and found out best to order online from South. Find a friend to split the costs.
