I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

Kubeh are Middle Eastern dumplings served in broth. Think matzo ball soup but more Sephardic than Ashkenazi. And the dumplings run deeper than just matzo meal. At the new restaurant with the same name, you can find lamb, beef, veggie, or fish dumplings. The fish was made up of ground cod, cilantro, and a hint of cumin. They were delicate and light (quite different than gefilte fish). You get to choose the broth you’d like and I thought the rich beet selek paired nicely with the fish balls. It was slightly spicy and very earthy with lots of veggie flavors. It was a nutritious and heartfelt meal. Price: $15
