Fish Balls at the Sunday Walking Street

September 7th, 2008. Thailand

Nik and I went to the Sunday Walking Street in Chiang Mai this evening, and we discovered how the fish balls were made!!  This woman makes up a pink fish paste, then squeezes balls out and drops them into boiling water with a spoon.  Easy as pie!

Personally, I think these fish balls are pretty gross.  The texture is kind of like super dense tofu/rubber, and they taste like nothing more than bland fish.  They are often served in noodle soups or grilled on a skewer.  I do eat them as a source of protein, but not because I like it!!
