HK Market: sushi grade fish?

blackbookali Jan 21, 2009 04:40 PM

I went to HK in Glendale a few years ago for some bulgogi and remember passing by there seafood section with what appeared to be fish cut into the rectangular blocks like you see at a sushi restaurant. Anybody try any of this stuff? If I remember correctly the prices seemed quite moderate.

    It's for sushi and its fine. I'm not an expert on grade, but I've bought it and was satisfied. If you aren't sure there's always Fish King on Glendale Avenue.

      if you bought it and it didnt kill you, then im more than satisfied. Were the prices low? For some reason I remember seeing the ahi for like 12-13 a pound. I love Fish King but its a bit more.

        Its been several months. I bought some ahi to make poke and for that you don't really need a high grade, but I think it was around $10 worth (not sure of the weight) and I thought it was comparable in price to what I buy when I go to Marukai.
        Luckily I have fishing friends that give me lots of tuna during the fishing season. That tells you I'll eat any grade if the price is right.

      I recommend Fish King in Glendale on the way to GCC (Glendale Community College). HK Market has some good korean food, but I haven't tried their raw fish.

        I've used their tuna and salmon to make poke. I recall it was about $10 a pound but the quality was pretty good. Can't tell you whether it would be as tasty as a sushi bar without the marination. But no one died or got sick so that's a good sign.
