Great stuff Craig. Yeah I think I HAVE seen that Penn Dutch sign probably many times but had no idea.

Didn't know about Two Bills. I THOUGHT something like that had happened but when I called Captain Mike's the Delaware Chicken Farm answered. They took over the number. They're pretty good too but Cap Mikes had more variety. Ipswich clams and all sorts of cool things. I miss it. But I'll check out Two Bills for sure.

The other thing I miss is finding sashimi grade tuna and salmon - ie. good enough for raw consumption. When I lived in LA there was a huge Japanese market that had it. But here... not so sure.

You might be very disappointed in Two Bills. My wife won't go in the place as the smell is horrendous. They don't have the variety Mikes did.

That stupid chicken farm had their number for several years while Mikes was still in business I called their number and asked about Mikes only to be told they had closed. This was happening two years before Mikes actually closed!

Craig forgot to add she also REFUSES to eat anything other than live crabs from that place because of said smell.

Craig's wife I presume? Haha. Yeah I don't think I am going to go to Two Bills. Smell is everything. Also variety makes it worth the trek for me. If they don't have Captain Mike's variety then...

I'd love a place that has rock shrimp regularly though. I'd make a trek for that.

They have them frozen already cook at Whole Foods. They call them Langostinos but I'm pretty sure they're rock shrimp. I'd love to find them like this but raw.
