A small street vendor, that has been selling Cantonese pork ball for almost 16 years on Charoenkrung Road, is where you can get the original recipe. You can choose between spicy and non-spicy ones, but we do recommend the spicy ones as they are more tasty. They also have deep fried Chinese buns with Red BBQ Pork and sweet cream fillings.
