The grilled Tilapia I ate in Costa Rica was amazing, rich, and flavorful, nothing like the bland Tilapia I get here. Figures they'd find the most bland species to sell in the US.

Initially I tought it was a local fish they were preparing fresh (i.e. non frozen) and the cook at the B&B that served it one evening said no, she buys it frozen.

Just wondering if anyone has a choice of different Tilapia or does the entire US eat the same Tilapia species?
