Fishmonger in the Watchung/Plainfield area?

Well, Kings in Warren always has something good. I didn't have your problem with Mansuetos fortunately. However, I had it with Captain Fresh and the (other) Asian Market, I can confidently say they are too risky despite the discount to Whole Foods. Somerset Farms is worth checking out on Thursdays, when the proprietor drives to Hunts Point, though, like the rest of their goods, better go over it verrrry carefully before buying. But nothing comes close to Seabra's of Newark.

USDA Prime Meats

There's something just wrong about cryovacced meat (the only kind Wegman's purveys)!

Fishmonger in the Watchung/Plainfield area?

Agree w Rona. Though now the tiny fish shop, Mansueto's, has changed hands, its new owners are dedicated fish mongers as well.

(Since I don't buy Chinese made foods -- having lived in that part of the world long enough to have been amply warned -- I avoid Asian markets. Mansueto's and Warren's Kings are the only places I go in this area, though b/c of mercury not too often.)
