No more TILAPIA at Sripraphai!

Had lunch there today and tried to order Tilapia and was told they are no longer serving it because people complained about the smell??? What smell?? I think it's one of the most non fishy fishes there are---the waitress said it smelled funny and off to people, so now they just serve sea bass, instead. She said they started doing this about 2 months ago, and I haven't ordered the fish since then, although we did get something by mistake a couple weeks ago and it had fish in it that looked like Tilapia but I guess it must have been sea bass......anyway, lunch was great as usual today:

-Chive Dumplings
-Chicken Satay
-Coconut Rice
-Shrimp with Green Curry and Bamboo Shoots
-Drunken Noodles with Beef
-Shrimp sauteed with the Peppercorn sauce they use for the mixed seafood dish on the specials menu (really excellent)--they made it special for us, because our friend only eats shrimp and no other seafood except TILAPIA and Snapper, and Salmon.
-Ice Tea with Milk

It was so mellow there in the pouring rain around 2 pm---what a pleasure.
Everyone else was eating soup!
