Liu Xiang Yuan(g) -- Deadly hot fish balls

PandanExpress | Jun 17, 2011 04:09 PM

I went last night for dinner and burned the crap out of my mouth with their fish ball soup. I was starving and knew better, but I took a huge bite out of their fist-sized fish balls and the broth inside scalded the inside of my mouth. But oh, it was well worth it.

Pillowy soft outside with the delicate flavor of fish, wrapped around a dangerously hot ground meat core with a hint of ginger. The soup balls came in (different than the broth that was INSIDE the balls) was not half bad either.

For one order of fish ball soup (about $7), you get a bowl with enough balls to share with two people. The dish was actually quite good. I'm not sure why the restaurant was so empty during dinner last night.

Maybe everyone was at home icing their tongues.
