Live West Coast Spotted Prawns - Super Special Price this week end!!

Charles Yu May 13, 2011 05:14 PM

Fellow foodies!
FYI, live spotted prawns are available at Foody Mart ( Warden and Steeles ) at $11.88 per pound. If sold out, try T&T up the road. A bit more expensive at $13.88 per pound but still a bargain, IMO.!

    Fung Tai at Bamburge Circle $11.99 per pound. Just got 1 pound there and 2 pound at T&T. I am going to have it soon.

      Hello skylineR33! Why only 1 lb from Fung Tai? Have they sold out?! How are you cooking them? Since they are so fresh, I like the HK ' plain boil' ( Bak Cheuk method ). Off dry Riesling to go with them?

        T&T's are bigger! I am cooking it with the HK 'plain boil' method now.
        I finished the Riesling you recommend me, like it a lots. I need more recommendation from you.

                  Thanks Charles for the tip on these prawns. I got some at the T&T Mississauga location this afternoon. There weren't that many left. Did hot pot (Da Bean Lou) with them. Delish! =)

      Thanks for the tip! I wonder if there's any left anywhere. I had dimsum at Crown Princess this morning and the table next to me had a plate of steamed spot prawns that looked very good! I shall hunt for some tomorrow...
