Meatballs have become a thing in the past couple of years. Mighty Balls is usually at one of the Holiday Markets, and New York Magazine just highlighted The Meatball Shop in their recent Boom Brands edition. Not sure why Marky Ramone’s Cruisin’ Kitchen, who served up different types of meatballs, closed shop at the end of the 2012 season.
The latest one to enter the fray is the Mtblls cart. They have been around for a few weeks, generally parking on 47th St between Park & Madison Aves.
Instead of serving various styles of meatballs (Asian, Mexican, etc) like Cruisin’ Kitchen did, Mtblls is straight Italian. When we stopped by, they had beef and chicken meatballs, but we understand they have a veggie option some days.
The menu is laid out like a subway line map, and you can get The Local, The Express, a Pair of Balls or a Bowl O’ Balls.
Because of the name alone, we went for the Bowl O’ Balls. It’s 3 meatballs served with your choice of sauce and cheese, with a big piece of focaccia on the side for $10.
