Sharing the same open space as Wang-Zheng's Halal Snacks is Old Wang Ji, which serves up Fuzhou snacks, focusing on the area's signature fish balls. They're probably not anything like your preconceived notion of a fish ball: they're more like round dumplings with that incorporate fish into the wrapper and intensely flavored pork into the filling, a savory "tang yuan" if you will. The broth packs a surprising punch. Skip the rice noodles and focus on these regional specialties.

This was a particularly difficult menu to translate. Some terms, like "cao cai" didn't turn up any direct translations, nor could I figure out if "swallow" referred to the bird's meat, or some colloquial name. Feel free to throw in your translation if you know.
The menu is Chinese only, so translations are my best approximations. .
