I’m glad I found this recipe, different than the one I tried before, in a way that it has to be dropped to boiling water first. I think this is it, the real taste of the street food fish ball ^-^’

Thank you!

Good day.

I have read your article on tempura. Was wondering if that was in Cebu or here in Manila? Coz I can find any of that in Manila.

Thank you.
