Conch Meat in South Palm Beach / North Broward
- CFByrne Apr 13, 2008 08:33 AM
I used to buy 5lb boxes of frozen Conch at a little Haitian Market on Atlantic Blvd in Pompano. Around 1990 this was appx $4 a pound!!! I believe it came from Turks and Caicos.
Now I live in Delray...
Anyone know good sources for conch meat at "reasonable" prices (whatever that means these days)...
Also, I am looking for some TODAY (Sunday). Anyone know of anywhere I can get some - reasonable $ or not?
PS: The Boys and other places have canned Conch - but I think that is actually scungilli (Northern conch). I'm looking for Bahamian style... and preferabally not canned of course!
Thanks RickL. Good to know for next time.
Captain Frank's on Boynton Beach Blvd in BB came through.
They used to be closed Sunday but for "season" at least they are open 10 to 2 on Sunday. It was appx $16 lb and I enjoyed making some excellent conch fritters for dinner (My recipe, if I don't say so myself, is among the best I've had).
I REMEMBER BACK THEN $4 AND CHEAPER TOO... IT WENT DOWN LAST YEAR. I'M PAYING CONCH @ $6.50/LB FROM NICARAGUA 100% CLEAN. - FROM QUIRCH FOODS MIAMI. (ATTACHED) - IS A PIC OF MY CONCH SALADS
