Two of Philly’s Meatballs Named Best in America

Meatballs at Pizzeria Stella

Travel + Leisure Magazine recently named Pizzeria Stella’s Polpette dish and Zahav’s Bulgarian-style meatballs as two of their picks for Best Meatballs in America.

Pizzeria Stella’s meatballs are created from a mix of pork, veal and beef, ricotta, bread and fresh herbs. Roasted in Stella’s wood-fired oven, these little guys are then finished in a simple sauce of San Marzano tomatoes and olive oil.




Zahav's meatballs are made with equal parts beef and lamb, then cooked over charcoal. But as T&L puts it, the touches that really make them pop is sugar for a hint of sweetness.

Well done, Philly.

Like the thing about thumbs and fingers, all Israeli restaurants are Jewish but not all Jewish restaurants are Israeli.
