Who can tell me what I ate at Gaga Seafood?

MC Slim JB | Feb 8, 201212:33 PM

Really been enjoying this place lately: nice live-tank options, pleasant (still kind of shiny-new) atmosphere, a staff that is friendly and patient with the customer who only speaks English but has a lot of questions about the seafood and the menu.

Got a live-tank offering recently with an off-menu preparation: slow-cooked in oil was the way my very helpful server described it to me, and she said she prefers this prep to steaming. I took a photo of the specials menu (attached), which includes pricing by the pound for the live-tank offerings. In the tanks, I have recognized eel, tilapia, cod, sea raven (a favorite of mine, but they only do it as a soup), and shrimp, but not the smallish fish I ordered.

It's the one in this wall blackboard photo listed as $14.95/lb., left column, fifth entry. Would love a reader of Chinese to tell me what I ate (it was lovely). Sadly, my picture of the fish in the tank was terrible.

Any help? Feel free to translate the rest, if you care to.
