Yoo Fishball


Ball that doesn't bounce, but shines

Never left without filling up my stomach when I made a trip to Yaowaraj - Bangkok's Chinatown. Today my little belly opted for fish ball noodle at a six months old noodle house. Yes, only six months!

Although Yoo Fishball is new to Yaowaraj, yet many food critics approve her home-made fishball, the Princess honored the shop a visit during her gourmet trip to Chinatown few weeks ago, and foodies love it.

The fact - owner Lady Yoo is no stranger to the food paradise belt of Bangkok (shabby dirty smelly) Chinatown. Her parents (and grandparents) are renowned fish ball vendors there for almost a century. Lady Yoo inherits the recipe from them. Result in that my bowl of fish ball with (silky texture) rice noodle in hearty broth (not msg water likes most noodle hawkers in Bangkok serve) shines, at THB 30, a steal for such a deli. However, the fish ball soup (no noodle) did come with msg. Strange shop!

Bonus track - this minimal decorated fish ball & noodle house is air-conditioned.

$1.5 US a bowl is so cheap. Used to be only $1US before.

30 baht for a bowl for delicious fish ball soup noodle in the comfort of air-conditioning? Amazing Chinatown indeed!

Yes Fish Burger,
BKK is like a gold mine in terms of good food with good price. Even after the US dollar weakening it is still cheap.

The fish ball looks very appealing and good to eat! Air-con dining for 30 baht a bowl of oishi noodle, where in the world can offer better than this? Oh Bangkok I love you. I am coming soon!
