Lobster-- anyone see it cheaper than $8.99?

Looking for lobster in the Oakland/Berkeley area.

  1. Was $6.99 at Ranch 99 Richmond when I bought my 2 1/4 pounder last weekend. Haven't been this week yet

    1. In SF, I got 2 big (2+lbs each) lively ones at Sun Fat on Mission for $7.99/lb yesterday.

        Was just at Sun Fat tonight and they are still $7.99/lb and lively.

      2. Might also look at Lucky Seafood in Oakland Chinatown. I've seen lobster there for $6.99 but also higher, like $8.99 while buying crabs. 99 Ranch might be a better bet since larger stores might/should have less fluctuation.

          $7.99 a pound at 99 Ranch - two days ago. Looked like they had some big ones.

        2. Yesterday at Ranch 99 Richmond there were some lobster out of the tank labeled fresh. One fairly big fellow was still moving and I was sorely tempted at $4.99 a pound. However, after last week's 2 1/4 pound feast I just said no.

          1. Hate to hijack this thread but would love for the info offered to expanded to the BA in general. SF & north would be great.

            Is that OK?

                Well Xmas eve day they were $9.99 at 99 Ranch in Richmond and I considered myself lucky. They were big ones too.

                Picked up some dim sum while I was there too.
