Matzoh Ball soup
Find it here: Manny’s
Why it’s so yummy: The salty, comforting soup comes with the biggest matzoh ball you’ll ever see. It’s soft, warm and tastes like home.
Kids will love it: Pop the soup onto a tray, cafeteria-style, just like school. And it’s a challenge to finish the entire matzoh ball.
While you’re there, try this too: Their corned beef sandwiches are so massive, you’ll have problems taking a bite. So be prepared to make a mess-and have leftovers that’ll take you through at least one more meal.
