According to NPR,
At the recent New York Wine and Food Festival, the Meatball Madness competition was sold out. That madness is spreading all over the country. Americans think of meatballs perched on top of spaghetti all covered in cheese, but meatballs are universal. Weekend Edition commentator Bonny Wolf reports on the latest foodie trend shaking things up.
Before reading that, in mid-November I posted to Chowhound, asking for recommendations for the best prepared food/takeout meatballs. I wound up getting fourteen responses so I guess I am not the only one craving carbs and delicious, meaty orbs. After I finish the Great Croissant Hunt, I will work on my search for the best meatball that you can take home.
I’d love to hear about your favorite Philly area meatballs! Here is the sources I have so far:
Talluto’s, Norristown and the Italian market
Carlino’s in Ardmore
Sam’s Market in Willow Grove
Silvio’s in Hatboro
Altmonte’s in Doylestown and Warminster
