Looking for a fishmonger in SF (or greater Bay Area if necessary) to buy Monchong/Pomfret from

CCLCRUN Jun 20, 2011 11:51 AM

When my hustband and I were in Kauai earlier this year, we had an amazing fish called Monchong (which I am learning through the magic of the internet, is also known as the Sickle Pomfret). In any event, I would like to buy some monchong/pomfret for a special dinner but so far have had very little luck in locating the fish in San Francisco.

Does anyone know of local fish mongers/specialty grocery stores that would carry this fish (or at the very least generally carry a good amount of "exotics")?

Thanks so much!

      I don't know about Sickle Pomfret, but I have bought pomfret and pompano at the Ranch 99 in Daly City.
