Big Matzah Ballin’

By | Tagged: culture, Life

This is why New York scares me: We had the world’s largest matzah ball in our midst. It contained 1,000 eggs, 80 pounds of margarine, 20 pounds of chicken base and 200 pounds of matzah meal. And it was eaten on Thursday by a crowd in front of Noah’s Ark deli on the Lower East Side.

Oy. I usually love matzah balls, but this really grosses me out.
