Where can I find Tile Fish?

I have an obscure query for Chinese Chowhounds and other officionados of Chinese food. One dish I miss from mainland China and definately cant cook myself is something called War kuai yu or Tile fish. Basically it is a whole fish which has had all the external flesh deboned and enscribed with a tile pattern. It is then deep fried and served with a fantastic sweet ginger and tomato sauce.The dish is originally from Sichuan but I have found it in restaurants in Bei jing as well. Does anyone know where I may find it in the bay area? Are there any great sichuanese restaurants where I may find it?
