Fresh uncooked Frog legs in the Eastbay?

I need them for a French Open tennis party.

I know I have seen them somewhere but now I can't remember where?

I'm in Rockridge.

Thanks

  1. They must be in distribution all of the sudden, because they've been at Falletti in San Francisco now for a couple weeks. Pushing $20 per pound, if I remember.

    If you're feeling adventurous, you can purchase fresh frog legs, with the rest of the frog attached, at better quality Chinese markets.

    1. How many do you need? If you don't want to deal with the whole, live frog (I've seen them in several Asian markets in Oakland), you could probably order them from any full-service meat market.

      1. Call A Cote and ask where they get theirs. I had some great ones there the other night.

        1. I'd call the Cafe Rouge meat market, I've had good luck there with uncommon meats.

          1. Believe it or not, if you've got a Lucky Market near you, they carry them. At least they have them at the ones here in Santa Rosa.

            1. Maybe try Fair Deal Meat Market, on the corner of Market and 36th in Oakland/Emeryville?
              I've never been inside but one (of the dozens) of hand-painted signs festooning the front
              of the shop says "frog legs".

              1. re: Chuckles the Clone

                Unfortunately, most of the stuff they have on the signs is not available inside, including frog legs last I was there. I've been disappointed several times (although, what they do have is good quality and fairly priced). Presumably they could get them for you, though.

                  Fair Deal Meat Market had frozen frog legs in stock when I went there (Feb/2014) @ $4.95/lb (I think...)
