Don't know if anyone's talked about this place yet... anyone been there? It is amazing!!!

Do not go if: you don't like seeing decapitated fish, live frogs, or live
crawfish. Ya, you can get live crawfish!! We made some the other night, and they were great.

You can also get cheap chicken, meat and veggies and really great salmon and tuna. Beats going to ghetro Kroger.

I haven't been to Lobster King yet... anyone?

i love that place. and yes it definitely beats kroghetto.

my boyfriend and i went in there to get crawfish and it was hilarious getting to pick them up with tongs and put them in a bag while they were all creepy crawling around. hahah.

i think the only thing that freaked me out were the eels! as much as i like eel, they wig me out cuz they look like they're gonna squirm right out of that bucket thing. ugh. they look so much like snakes too.

i've been curious about lobster king myself, but thus far not enough to go in there.

I gave it a try today. Its Hong Kong styled chinese food (lots of seafood). They have dim sum everyday, so I tried a couple of the hostess' recommendations. The "shrimp balls" were awesome, depite the name, and the Sui Mai (pork) was great too. The hostess swore that the chicken feet were great, so I ordered them, but they looked a little too feety so I couldn't get myself to actually eat one.

leslie kelly's blog on the CA has some violently different opinions on this here LOBSTER KING... i don't know if i want to ruin the mystique by actually eating there.

if i do, i will eat feet.
