I think that meatballs are the perfect food. My favorites are beef, but I also like turkey, lamb, chicken, pork, and veal meatballs. When I was in high school, and my friends went out for pizza, I would order a side of meatballs and skip the pizza. (I don't like standard pizza, never did.)
They contain just a little starch and plenty of protein. In sauce, they can feature veggie nutrients. Yum.
I now know two places in Beverly with very good meatballs, one in the Cummings Center (bldg 100, Il Tramminzo or similar), and one on Cabot Street near the bridge. So how come I don't know where in Gloucester makes great meatballs? People, I need to know!
