Hi Friends, Thanks for taking your precious time reading this post.
Huwaaaaaaahhhh……. It makes me hungry by now :D~~~~~~
There was a little Vietnamese restaurant in Phoenix, AZ that I use to go to and have fish balls. Loved them- havent had them in years. This looks super yummy to me.
Anncoo this looks so perfect right now — the weather is rainy and cold in Dallas 🙁 If only I could have a big steaming bowl of this fish ball soup — I can almost smell the incredible scent of the broth and fish balls — now if only I could taste it… 🙂
Your fish ball soup looks very 'ching', yummy!
Delicious brothy soup that is also healthy and easy to prepare. will share this with my friends, too!
THis soup seems easy and quick to prepare, and it tastes very good, also ! ;o)
Have a nice day
Beautiful and simple. I love it!
Oh! I LUV your fish ball soup esp those bouncy and juicy fish balls! Yummy yummy! Must make some fish balls soon. 😉
Always enjoy fish balls – like them best in soup. Any recipe for good fish balls? Thanks
I'm adding this to my "must-try" list. Thanks for posting.
It looks beautiful and if I didn't know what was inside I would almost be tempted to take a bite, but I am not a big fan of fishballs to be honest. The dish does look gorgeous though!
I loved eating fish ball soup when I was growing up.
Chris: Sure, add 冬菜 tastes better. (I wanted to add this and carrot, keep forgetting to buy carrot so just add some chicken powder lor).
Blessed Homemaker: I love 冬菜, like to use this to steam minced pork.
Talking about 东菜, I remember my mom used to add this and I hated it when I was a child. But now, I'm learning to appreciate the taste 🙂
Something light after the heavy eating over the cny period. Is it ok to omit the chicken powder?
Rachel: Thanks! Add some carrot into it, better and omit the chicken powder. (I keep forgetting to buy carrots for my cooking this time).
Rebecca: Thanks for your nice words.
5*Foodie: Yes, can add any meat into it.
Ann: Add noodle into it, also not bad.
Sounds healthy and delicious, anncoo!

Laura: Thanks! Are you going to cook again and this soup too!
Mary: Exercise YES! You look quite slim to me ;D
Murasaki: Thanks! I also prefer light cooked food.
This looks so nice and light. I have been using way too much butter and cream in my cooking lately, I have a craving for lighter foods!
This looks light and delicious, just perfect after all the New Year indulgence….on the wrong food! Chinese New Year is almost over….time to go dieting and more exercise…haha
Your stir recipe is up! Oh, and i wish I had had these fish balls recipe too.. gotta try it!
Little Inbox: Yes, My family had the drunken chicken and the soup on the same day, so I can save some cooking time in the kitchen ;DD
Angie YHL: hahaa…I also cook with noodle sometime.
Tigerfish,: Sure, no problem..I still have some fishballs in the freezer.
Kenny: We can always make use of this stock to cook anything.
Angie, Hungry tummies, Zurin: Come and join me 🙂 You want rice or noodle or just the soup?
Blessed Homemaker: I always try not to add chicken powder, can add carrot or 东菜.
Lia: ha..haa…I'm not that clever. I bought the fish balls (handmade) at the market.
Tina, Fimere, Zurin, Vrinda: Thanks for your lovely comments 😉
Kristy: Right ;DD
Biren: Next time when you're back here, remember to eat fishball noodle…hahaa..

I love fishballs in whatever dish…

Hi Anncoo, I've never heard of Chicken powder before! This soup looks really great.
Love fish balls! Can only get frozen ones here and it is hard to find the right kind of fish to make my own.
Simple and delicious! The best thing was we can have the complete meal in one shot.
I love fishball soup ..it looks completely healthy and refreshing Ann!
Fish balls always our family's favorite. Whether for soup, fried, etc. They are yummy! Did you make your own fish balls?
I cook this using my leftover stock minus the chicken power 🙂 My kids love the cabbage as it literally melts in the mouth.
Thanks for the reminder, I've not cooked this for a long time.
I can do with a bowl of this right now!
une soupe vraiment appétissante
This would be really great for me now! Just doesn't feel like to cook anything today.
Cute and lovely..Soup looks refreshing.
This is a classic staple soup in my home too, when I wanna go for something simple and yummy, 🙂
Wooo….I like this. Bringing over a bowl of bee hoon to you – can you ladle some soup for me, plus maybe a few fishballs 🙂 ?
oh, this is good , simple n nice. I will sometimes add 冬粉 （粉丝）
The soup must be sweet and I love your drunken chicken too.
