Looking for a (relatively) close Seafood supplier!

After having moved from Avenue & Lawrence up to Yonge & Clarke, City Fish is no longer as easy to get to as it once was.

As a follow-up to my previous Thornhill request thread, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable (and fresh) seafood monger up in the new 'hood.

A butcher as well, would be a huge bonus!

  1. I don't think there is anything worth your while at Yng and Clarke. At the Prommenade Mall, there is an Asian supermarket that is great for fresh fish. They will prepare it any way you like at great prices. It isn't City Fish, but nothing is! In the same mall, you'll find Nortown for meats, but they're pretty expensive. I make the hike to Highland Farms on Dufferin south of Steeles. They have a great meat selection and really competitive prices. They will cut it the way you like it at no extra charge. That's the problem when you leave the "hood". There's nothing to eat!!

      There used to be a decent fish store just south of Clarke, west side of Yonge, in the mid-80's but I assume it's long gone. I did a search and could not find anything. That's where I used to buy fish when I lived around there.

      Edit: I did a bit more looking, and it appears that the store (Fisherman's Brother) moved to 71 Glen Cameron Rd. and then closed a few years ago.

          I am guessing you are referring to T&T? I have heard good things about their seafood - never tried it though. As an aside, the thought of buying meat from them scares me.

          Yes, leaving the 'hood'....*big sigh*.....the trade-off however; is a backyard backing onto a forest/ravine - I will take serenity any day!
