had lunch yesterday at wunsche bros cafe, a really nice little cafe in old town spring.

this was our appetizer. fried sauerkraut and sausage balls. and it was amazing!!

i am convinced that any food in ball form is delicious ... think about it, beignets. donut holes. rochers. pb balls. fried ice cream. fritters. takoyaki. cheese balls.

purpose: hit every restaurant in houston that offers food in ball form and rate it on a delicious scale. also, find weird food balls.

or maybe the word balls is just too funny not to say multiple times.

balls balls balls balls

You could end it at Beaver's & get the Beaver Balls for dessert.

I just had the boudin balls at Gilhooley's in San Leon. Awesome. The ones at Mardi Gras ain't bad as a closer substitute.

OMG! I love sauerkraut and do you think I could make that at home? Were they crusted/breaded before frying? I make my own sauerkraut at least a few times a year, too!

hey beth, this is how i think they did it.

they ground up cooked sausage, mixed it up with the saurkraut, drained it. then rolled balls and dipped it in fritter batter before frying.

they were awesome!!

I love the beignets dessert at Glass Wall...

I suggest Ocean Palace in Chinatown for dim sum. How can you have a ball-shaped food tour without dim sum? They have a wide variety of weird - yet delicious - ball-shaped foods. I recommend the fried sesame balls filled with sweet red bean paste.

esther, i love ocean palace. the sesame balls are my favorite!

Try the conch fritters from McDuff's at Norman Cay, Exumas, Bahamas! They're the BEST conch fritters, which are in ball form, that you'll find anywhere in the Caribbean!
