Asian Meatballs

My 2 young grandsons are coming for the holidays and they are hooked on Asian meatballs at the moment. I've been searching menus online, but haven't found any. Does anyone know of any restaurants in Dallas that serve them? I'll go to any part of town! Hey, that's what grandmas do.

  1. Yao Fuzi in Plano has a dish called something like lion's head meatballs. I like the restaurant very much.

      Oh, yes! I forgot about that restaurant. Thanks!

    2. You'll find Iionshead at any shanghai style restaurant. There's one by Maxims that used to still have the old "Taiwan Cafe 2" sign up. Not sure if they moved the sign but it's a good Shanghainese restaurant with lionshead, among other items.

          It's excellent. As is all their pho. I had their chicken pho yesterday.

        2. Any particular kind of meatball they are looking for?

          Japanese, Vietnamese, Persian, Pakistani, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Thai???

          Every Asian culutre has a meatball or even balls of veggies that resemble meat......kinda hard to suggest all of them.

          Any particular meat? Lamb, Beef, Pork, etc?

          1. There's a small Vietnamese restaurant in Southlake called "I love noodle" I ran across that has a delicious pork meatball served in pho. They also offer pho with just the meatballs if you don't want the other meat toppings. I'm not an expert on Vietnamese cuisine nor do I know how that restaurant compares with others in DFW (it was the first vietnamese restaurant I've tried since relocating here) but I thought it was very good.

              I believe what you had was Bun Moc


              The pho with just meatball is Pho Bo Vien

                I grabbed a menu on my way to Krogers since I couldn't remember the name of the dish. It was the Pho Dac Biet: a hodgepodge of tendon, tripe, different cuts of beef, beef fat, and the tasty meat ball. Next visit I'm going to get the Pho Bo Vien, they were very good meatballs.
