The Secret Cheap Live Lobster Place in Greenwood

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 10:30 AM

Would you like to know of a secret wonderland where you can buy very cheap lobster in South Brooklyn? Well. Let me tell you about it. There's a guy on 26th between 4th and 5th Avenues. The name of his business is TJ King's, and he's a lobster wholesaler. According to the guy fishing out the sea bugs that day, they mostly export lobsters to Hong Kong. But they also sell cheap-ass lobsters right from the tank.

He's not super easy to find, but it's across the street from the Aladdin bread factory (and their lovely new shop, Baked In Brooklyn), and lately they've had a sign out. The going rate is $4.99 a lb, or 3 1.5 lb lobsters for $20. Even with the lobster glut, that is a deal! And you can go inside and pick out the ones you want. There's just tubs and tubs of them, clacking around on those insectoid little legs of theirs.

In fact, if you're in the mood for a lobster roll, you should pop into the bakery, get a good iced coffee and pick up one of their bags of fresh rolls for $1. You are going to have the cheapest, best lobster roll in town! Don't say I never did anything for you. Believe you me I thought long and hard before divulging my lobster secret, but you guys are cool. Right?
