Dungeness Crab .99 a pound!

This weekend I went up to Albany to see a friend. On my way back, I stopped at a little Asian Market on Colvin Avenue. I saw Dungeness crabs, and bagged five and proceeded to the counter. The woman promptly declared "Ninety-Nine Cent a Pound!". I then went back and bought 7. It came to 9.57 for all 7 plus the one I previously bagged. Always going back!

  1. Is it possible that someone mixed them up with Jonah crabs, which look very similar (but are smaller) and are usually in that price range?

      I had the feeling something was fishy....(no pun intended!) The meat was just too flaky and look like arborio rice. Thanks a bunch!
