Wanna grab something fast, hot, in small portion, cheap and of course delicious? I think this one could be the good alternative choice for you guys. 佳興魚丸店 – Jiā Xìng Fish Meat Ball Shop
Before, there were several times when we just passed by that restaurant and felt curious what they sell, as they have a shark caricature on the banner, but anyway we just passed it like that, since all the menu, and everything..everything is in Chinese character, and Leo, as always, was so lazy to think, translate and explain me one by one, so we decided to go only if we are with a local friend who can understand and talk with the seller.
So, couple weeks ago, finally we tried to eat in that restaurant which is located in No 243, Section 3, TingZhou Rd, at the back of Gong Guan Night Market. Even it’s just a small restaurant, typically traditional Taiwanese restaurant, but it is easy to find, for it has a shark caricature on its banner, the caricature that made me curious.
The menu (which is all in Chinese)is listed on the banner so everyone passes by can just take a look on it and decide whether they want to go inside or not. They provide fish ball in some variation; with mushroom inside, fish or meat inside, just solid fish ball, and some other else that i don’t remember, they also have variation with noddle; dried noddle with sauce and meat over it, noddle with soup and fish ball, white noddle, yellow noddle, whatever..i don’t really remember, basically they provide the fish ball and noddle! and that is why they have that shark logo 😀
Not only everything is written in Chinese, the sellers also speak Chinese only, so..better to go with the one who speaks Chinese!
As any other typically Traditional Taiwanese restaurant, This restaurant also has the kitchen in front, they even make the ball in front of its shop, so everyone can see and take a look. Entered to the restaurant you will find 5 tables (well..i think it’s 4 :p) with 4 chairs each, so roughly the capacity is no more than 20 persons.
We were 4 and we ordered differently; the fish balls with the rice noddle (60 NT: 18.000 IDR, 2USD),fish balls with meat inside (50 NT: 15.000 IDR) Fish balls with yellow noddle (60 NT), the dried noddle (60 NT), -take a look pictures bellow anyway-
I did try all of those, and all were delicious, really!!
The fish ball with the meat inside tasted so yummy, it’s salty enough, the texture of the fish and meat are just indicated that it’s fresh, the dried noddle had good sauce, and the ingredient were just so..well..delicious
The portion is small, but anyway was okay for me, i don’t need big portion as i always eat little but often :p, but for boys, surely the portion is not enough for you, you may need to order the noddle and the fish ball, but anyway you might not be full yet, like Olvin was :p..But let’s compare it in price, i think that’s a good price!
Simply..I love the foods here, and would like to come back again someday..Point? 8.5 from 1 to 10 scale
Okay Guys, happy eating and see you in the next restaurant
