I found this Chinese snack at Marina Food a giant Chinese grocery store in Fremont, California. I admire the company’s motto “If No Good Fish, Would Rather Not Do!” I can tell the heart going into his snack. Each bag contains about 20 packets of 4 piece curry fish ball.
Curry fish ball is a classic popular skewered street food in Hong Kong. The texture is close to a steamed hotdog without the casing, very finely ground mixture of fish, starch, and seasonings. I noticed a slight recoil when I bit it which shows quality because the real thing has a bouncy texture if done well. While it isn’t super fishy compared to my previous fish snacks, you can taste the mild fish flavor similar to fish stock. Finally the curry flavor itself resembles Japanese curry more than Indians’.
