You can have any ball, bread, salad, and side combination. Choose to have the ball fried, baked, crispy, steamy, cauterized, or some combination of these! Each ball is unique and each ball tells a story: yours! Only cash, not credit cards. 24-25-26/12/18 CLOSED -- 1/1/19 OPEN -- 31/12/18 13:00-19:00
