2023 Meatballs

Grandma’s Philly

There was no shortage of meatballs in Philly before Grandma’s opened. Now, every other meatball in the city has to be judged against these tender, gently herb-y Thai beef meatballs, with their slivered scallions, flakes of fried onion, and thin, sweet gravy that chef Donrutai Jainon based on memories of her grandmother’s meatballs in Chiang Mai.
