Lobsters in Triangle for hella cheap

initialdrew Dec 13, 2008 01:28 PM

Just got back from Grand Asia in Cary. Because of the Maine lobster glut, lobster is going for $5.99 and $6.99 a lb. Thank god for recession prices.

        Do any of you know if the lobster deal is still going on? Any reviews on the lobsters?

          I bought 10 or so to cater a party and they all turned out great. They went up to 6.99 and 7.99 a lb, but that's still affordable. Some of the smaller ones were missing claws, but otherwise no problems. Just make sure you take your time finding the right one. Grand Asia is where I got them and the Asian market that's close to Garner also has them. A & C, I think?

      I saw those too. Some impressive sizes in their tanks! A heck of a lot better than the sorry looking pugs in Kroger.
