A common street food found all over Thailand. Asian style meatballs or “look chin” are commonly added to noodle soups, or simply skewered, grilled and served with a spicy, sweet dipping sauce.

Bonus Video: Once you’re ready to make them, I have a bonus video where you can see the meatball squeezing technique over and over again until you get the hang of it. Watch it here:
