Fish Ball - Filipino Style

Fish balls is one of the favorite con gee for the Asian food. You can order them from Asian food restaurant. Supermarket of Mall food stall. I love the taste of it, of course when you dip it with there sweet and sour chili sauce.

In the Philippines we love fish balls, specially when you hear the tik-tak sound of there frying pan as they approaching. If you can not go to the malls to grab one, definitely the fish ball vendors will come to you. They are every where around the city. Or should I say they have a suki (regular customers). In same time of the day their sukis are waiting for them. The fun thing is that when you surround the cart while rushing to stick on the fish balls.
