Teochew People Have Balls

When you walk around Fa Yuen Street at Mongkok, you'll find this signboard that says: "Lok Yuen King of Beef Balls" with the smaller print saying "authentic Teochew food."

This shop which is located at 11, Fa Yuen Street is well-known for the meat and fish balls.

They even have to emphasise on the menu that all the balls are made by a Teochew master chef.

There are not many tables in the shop, but most of the customers come here for the takeaways.

Since I couldn't make up my mind on what balls to have, so the best thing was to try a bit of everything. The bowl of noodles I ordered came with three beef balls, a pork ball, a fish ball and another hairy ball beyond identification.

This placed is famed for its 'exploding' balls, so we ordered some to see how the explosion is like. Nee actually got the explosion 'debris' on her face and her hair! Inside every exploding ball, there is a small cube of fish mold surrounded with soup.

Eventually, we didn't stop at just balls. We walloped a full plate of deep-fired fish skins too!
