I bought fish at the Wan Chai Wet Market all the time. I only patronized the fish mongers inside the building and never had any complaints. They'd gut and scale the fish without me asking. Most locals want whole fish so I don't think filleting is that common.
Pomfret is great, have had it in Bombay and Dubai, but have not seen it in HK, are they likely to have it in wet market?
And is pompano the Chinese name?
Great that's what I'll get then, I am hoping they understand clean and gut lol
Pomfret in chinese is é¯§éš.
In cantonese it is pronounced "Chong yue". You probably won't need to ask for it, as these are usually displayed prominently in sight, so just a matter of pointing at it..
Thanks a lot, those characters just look like 2 stoves to me , I wish I paid more attention in class!!
Now for this rain to stop for a bit so I actually leave the apartment!!
