Video: When In Manila, Eat Fish Balls


It’s lunchtime, it’s Friday, and I know what you’re craving to eat: fish balls. Unfortunately, these tasty treats are a rare find stateside, but head to certain parts of Asia and you can find them everywhere.

Fish balls in the Philippines, for example, are usually made from cuttlefish or pollock, and are sold all over the country by street vendors who offer several varieties of sauce to dip your skewered snack in, as seen above.

1) Spicy (vinegar, water, diced onions, and garlic),

2) Sweet (corn starch, banana ketchup, sugar and salt), or

3) Sweet and Sour (sweet sauce with hot chilis added).

    Fish balls are easy to find in any Asian supermarket in North America. Just look in the freezer section of your local T&T Supermarket or grocery store in your local Chinatown market.
