Shark's Fin Soup

Frederick | Mar 15, 200602:03 AM

This Cantonese classic has been intriguing me lately. What are the best places to get good shark's fin soup?

Also, when perusing the menus of several restaurants, I noticed many different "categories" or varieties of shark fin soup.

"Braised Shark's Fin in Superior Broth"
"Braised Superior Shark's Fin"
"Shark's Fin Soup"

What is this "superior" broth? And also, more of a personal question, is it really that tasty? I hear that the fins themselves have little taste, but the broth is great.

Any info or thoughts on this interesting delicacy are much appreciated!
