Almondigas, or Misua with Bola-bola is a meatball soup using a very thin, delicate wheat egg noodle.
The Misua soup is served with meatball or 'bola-bola' that is either cooked separately or dropped in the broth to cook with all other ingredients.
The word Almondiga(also Albondiga) actually means meatball in Spanish, so the name refers more on the meatball ingredient on the dish, rather than the misua noodle.
