After visiting museums and monuments in the capital city, coming to this open air fish market was most unusual. The only reason we visited this place was its mention in a Nov/Dec 2012 issue of Newsweek magazine. We visited the market around 5 pm on a Friday evening and had no problem finding a parking lot. The collection of ten or more stalls sell both fresh and cooked seafood of all kinds. We tried some cooked jumbo prawns and found them to be not fresh. We had better luck with a bowl of clam chowder. Most stalls do not provide seats while one or two had standing tables. The place smelled fishy (of course!), ground wet and dirty.
