    Bravo to you for making the effort to learn Cantonese, I am sure it will pay off four fold. The asian food culture I am sure is full of wondrous things, but I am glad you focused on these delicious fish balls. After reading this I believe not having access to fresh fish can be very limiting, I do need to at least visit the coast for some seafood. Thanks for presenting some delicious Hong Kong cuisine!

    Fishballs are quite popular in Sweden, where I am on vacation right now, too. I have to say I’m not the biggest fan, though I love all the other things inside the soup. It’s amazing what something like cutting carrots decoratively can do too… it really transforms the dish!

    Congratulations on learning another language, Purabi! It must be fun and exciting to deal with food vendors in the marketplaces like you mentioned — such a vibrant, flavorful culture and so much to learn. Those lobster balls — fish balls — meatballs — all sound marvelous!

    Hot Pot Soup has been on my mind since it’s gotten colder. Another fascinating post!

    Oh, Purabi this is amazing! While I’m allergic to fish and can’t indulge, I sure wish I could! How interesting that there is such a VARIETY! Learning cantonese will certainly pay off and it sounds like you are having a wonderful time exploring the culinary culture of Hong Kong!

    Stunning recipe, photos and writing ~ as always!

    Sounds fantastic! My husband loves congee with fish balls, he ate it all the time growing up in Taiwan. I would win major brownie points if I make this at home. Bookmarked!

    thanks for dropping by my blog! looks liek you’re having a blast in hongkong. I love fishballs, it’s so hard to get fresh ones here in london. they’re also notoriously difficult to make yourself to get that perfect springy texture! your soup looks great, really reminds me of my mum’s soup (:
