I forgot tis the season for Madison Square Eats! I happened to walk by right at lunch time and it just so happened that the stall I most wanted to try accepted credit cards. This cash-free gal was in luck!
I had never heard of Mighty Balls before so that was the main draw. They had tons of flavor options and the line was long – all good signs. While they have several recommended combos, I decided to go rogue. I ordered the pork meatballs on a hoagie with African onion sauce and spicy feta on top. The sauce was sour so the spicy feta was a good choice to round it out. I was surprised at how juicy the meatballs were. After seeing a mass of them getting pressed on the griddle I really thought they would dry out. I guess those guys really know what they’re doing.
I took my messy sandwich into Madison Square Park where I could scarf on a bench in peace while people watching. The sandwich was very filling and I washed it down with a big solo cup of Mighty Balls’ fresh pomegranate lemonade. I think the meatball shop may have the market cornered on brick and mortar meatball restaurants, but Mighty Balls is a great addition to the roving street fair scene.
