Amvrosios Fish Tavern: Cheap fresh fish - See 81 traveler reviews, 29 candid photos, and great deals for Preveza, Greece, at TripAdvisor.
Chinatown, where most fish cost just 10 percent above wholesale price, is perhaps the cheapest place to buy seafood in New York City. It also has something few other stores carry: live fish. But few non-Chinese customers take advantage of the low prices. Most, concerned about the freshness of fish displayed on ice packs in open air, as they often are in Chinatown, and not wanting to bother with traveling to Chinatown, sorting through unfamiliar fish and struggling with language barriers, prefer to buy in their neighborhood stores and can wind up paying nearly twice as much.
Fish caught the same day they are taken to distributors are the freshest and fetch the highest price, as do fish with fewer bruises. Fish caught at the beginning of a long trip, which are not as fresh, and those with more bruises are cheaper. While most premium-grade stores buy only the freshest and least bruised fish, Chinatown owners often settle for something short of perfection.
Fresh fish, good service and cheap prices
Aug 20, 2016 - Zeerovers: THE place to go for cheap fresh fish
The market carries plenty of fresh fillets and whole fish, as well as seafood like clams and oysters. Further, Greenpoint Fish is branching out to discover more interesting, environmentally friendly and healthy (no pesticides, no hormones) fish products. What you're buying here isn't cheap, but it's high quality and a worthy splurge.Mattrah Fish Market is by far the cheapest place in Muscat to buy fresh fish. It located next Cornish and also you could get vegetable market within the market area. Of-course you get mostly daily fresh from sea and place smell is awful.
From my view, place suitable for man only as the walking corridor is two narrow and will busy with man during peak time.I would describe Muscat to be extreme in all aspects of it's being. The landscape is raw and harsh and it difficult to believe that many of the surrounding wastelands of rocks and sand fill with water creating amazing waterholes and swimming experiences. If you want a true dose of what it is like to be part of this culture I recommend a morning trip to the fish markets. It is a man's arena where they take their work very seriously. In temperatures that reach well beyond 40 degrees there is no time to waste when it comes to butchering and preparing the fish. It is really rather brutal but a true glimpse into the harshness of life in this intriguing city. The men wield knives that are extraordinarily sharp and larger. They gut, scale and hack the fish as per the instructions of the customer. It's not a large market but there is still plenty to see. Ask permission to take photographs as some of the fishmongers are sensitive to cameras and foreigners. The fish is incredibly fresh and cheap to buy and its hard not to respect these men that wield these knifes with such skill and precision.Convenient if you’re passing through midtown and the fish is certainly fresh. Wild Edibles is not cheap but I find they have more interesting filets and great shellfish. Located in Grand Central Market in the middle of the train station.
