Matzo Ball Soup At Route 58 Deli

Mmm, mmm good: we love these moist, delicious dumplings of matzah meal, eggs, water and (traditionally) schmaltz (chicken fat) sitting in a warm pool of chicken soup. It’s good for the soul—and the stomach.

Jeff Goldberg’s The Route 58 Delicatessen in Virginia Beach sets the standard in our region, in our tastebud’s humble opinion.

Among monster-sized sandwiches and creamy Carnegie Deli cheesecake, you’ll find the Matzo Ball soup—homemade, as it should be, in both cup and bowl size. Listen to your inner Jewish mother and get the latter and call once in a while, why don’t you?

The Route 58 Delicatessen is at 4000 Virginia Beach Blvd. 757-227-5868
