Desperate for spongy, fishy, shrimpy cakes from the Orient

Yaqo Homo | Apr 13, 2009 08:30 AM

If I'm not mistaken, Thai, Malaysian and Indonesian cuisine all have a version of some sort of spongy, flavorful, ground-up seafood cake made from fish or shrimp or squid or what have you.

I'm not necessarily thinking of Korean seafood pancakes (though I love those); those are too big.

The items I'm thinking about are bite-size appetizers, and they come with some sort of dipping sauce.

Where can I get these, and who makes them really, really well (bonus points if it tastes extra fishy)? I'm hungry.
