Shark Fin Soup

Hello,

Has anybody had any Shark Fin Soup lately at a Chinese restaurant?

About 30 years ago, we had one Chinese restaurant which offered this item on a regular basis. However, this restaurant is now closed. No other Chinese restaurant in my area (Norfolk, Virginia) has offered this item since then.

I've forgotton what Shark Fin Soup even tastes like. However, I recall that it looked something like a dark Hot & Sour Soup.

What's up with the lack of Shark Fin Soup?
