Matzoh Ball Soup in Center City (Philly)

Hey all -
I've been craving matzoh ball soup since I had some last week at a friend's passover. Any recommendations on where to get a great bowl in Center city?? I'm willing to travel to South Philly, Faimount and NO-libs too. But not out to the burbs or to Jersey.

        Second Famous Fourth. All their chicken soups (matzo balls or no) are great but not cheap. Matzo Ball is the best value because the balls are the size of softballs.

      2. Zahav has great matzoh balls in its Yeminite chicken soup.

          is that always on the menu or just during Passover?

              That soup is on the regular menu, I can't say whether it always has the matzoh balls in it.

          1. I've always enjoyed Marathon Grill's matzoh ball soup. I think they serve it every Thursday, but that could have changed.

            1. Honey's in NoLibs has great matzoh ball soup.
