Where to buy frog?

To cook, rather than eat in a restaurant. Downtown Manhattan locations would be ideal, but will go wherever.

Thanks!

  1. I've seen them in Chinatown - I believe at a seafood market on Bayard, maybe at Elizabeth or so.

    1. Try the two seafood stalls on Mott St. between Hester and Grand. They always have frogs available and their quality is better in general. Avoid the stalls on Canal.

      1. There's a Chinese grocery store on Clinton above Delancey that sells live frogs.

            Dynasty always has plenty of large (and live) frogs for sale.

              My vote is for Dynasty as well. I've bought frog from them on several ocassions.

            2. You'll find them in most places that sell live seafood in Chinatown. Try Mott Street between Hester and Grand.

                  It may now be called Hong Kong Supermarket but it's the same place. Same owners same market.
