Let?s start with the noodles. Instead of overwhelming the bowl with larger noodles that tend to get in the way, Fromin?s serves up uber-thin shards like the frayed ends of a comfy pair of blue jeans.
Smaller noodles provide a sort of net, allowing the warm, rich broth to climb aboard with every spoonful. And the soup is worthy of inclusion in every bite with a savory balance between the saltiness of the chicken and sweetness of the carrots.
Best of all, is the glorious ball. The matzo is rich with golden corn flavors and a subtle hint of nuttiness as if the chef had crushed an almond into the meal. The texture and balance of the orb is spot-on with a softness on the outside that gives way to a density inside allowing the sphere to stay just firm enough all the way to the bottom of the bowl.
Oh, and it?s also the least expensive bowl I've found. Mazel nosh.
