The Best seafood in Portland!

Lyf's seafood is fantastic! Have been buying from him since early summer, after reading a ton of reviews trying to find **The Best** seafood in Portland.

This is it! Three words: quality, selection, value.

I've never had anything that is less then superlative. The fresh is **very** fresh, and even his flash-frozen is fresher than much of the "fresh" seafood the gourmet stores sell (after defrosting, check the firm-ness of the flesh and the smell).

His selection is also broader than I've seen in even the high-end grocers: sable fish? sushi-grade? 4-5 kinds of salmon? You betcha!!

Prices are comparable or less than Portland grocers, so Flying Fish is a no-brainer for value.

* it's all sustainably caught;
* Lyf is a local merchant;
* He and his staff go out of their way to give advice and be helpful.
