Meatball subs rank right up there with chicken Parmesan and French onion soup in your book. Sometimes you just need one.
And now it?s easy to get your fix at the recently opened Mondo Meatball in Wicker Park, a comfortably casual little joint that reimagines Grandma?s classic in many tantalizing ways.
First, there?s Mondo?s extensive collection of dipping sauces--ten in all, including a creamy Thai peanut satay, a garlicky pesto and an herby chimichurri--which means you can eat meatballs as often as you please and never suffer from red-sauce burnout.
Should you tire of moist, classic beef meatballs served on soft ciabatta and smothered in melted mozzarella, you can always mix things up with meatballs over polenta, mini meatball sliders or a big meatball salad. (What? It?s sorta healthy.)
Not in the mood at all? Get the risotto.
