The Balls @ Plaza Mont Kiara

The Balls delivers precisely what its name promises: Takoyaki, the sphere-shaped Japanese snack that can be spotted locally in some Malaysian malls. It's worth noting that the The Balls' "Monster Balls" try to be a premium type of takoyaki: Each ball of creamy batter, freshly cooked & served warm, is packed with a choice of either salmon trout or an entire diced baby octopus - the former's more flavoursome; the latter supplies a more engaging texture. Six sizeable balls, brushed with bonito flakes & mayo in dashi, cost RM22 - pricier than the norm, but The Balls' founders Eddy & Ching Huei do a respectable job of providing customers with genuinely good-quality ingredients. Available most Thursdays at Plaza Mont Kiara's weekly courtyard market.

The Balls
Stall 46, Plaza Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. Thursdays, 11am-7pm. Tel: +60165188308 or +60163209823

  3. I love these....and my fav is the one with octopus. It's a monster ball with one whole baby octopus (as opposed to the usual ones with just small chunks of it), so we should expect to pay a more premium price for it! ;)

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, these are big balls indeed! i was a bit surprised when they revealed the price, but in fairness, there was a whole lot of seafood in this takoyaki, so i'm complete agreement with you :)

  5. The price really quite steep for a street food especially when you can get those "balls" at a cheaper price but I saw the octopus size they using is quite big :P

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, i think they definitely do deserve to charge higher prices than the usual takoyaki at shopping malls, since they use a more substantial amount of seafood in their balls :)
