The mention of fishes in the HKFL discussion reminds me that I should try to cook live fishes more often at home. But the markets around me seem to mostly stock 4 vanilla varieties:
- tilapia (立魚)
- catfish (塘虱)
- silver carp (鰂魚)
- big mouth bass (盲曹)
Looking for markets that sell ‘fancier’ fishes requires some effort. The closest source to me seems to be Marina in Cupertino, which usually stocks some grouper looking fishes.
Question: Any other good sources elsewhere in the Bay Area?
I vaguely recall New Sang Chong in Oakland may have some but its been a long time.
Here are the ones I looked at in the last few months that don’t venture beyond those 4:
99 Ranch Mountain View
99 Ranch Foster City
Marina Foster City
H-Mart (they have abalone but its not a fish)
New Wing Yuan Sunnyvale
