IN A LOCAL sandwich popularity contest, the cheesesteak would win. Hands down. Runner-up would be roast pork. But which sandwich would come in next isn't quite clear. Italian hoagie? Chicken cutlet? Eggplant Parmesan? Maybe. Or maybe not. From South Philly to Center City, an old-fashioned newcomer is ascending the sub ranks. Or, should we say rolling up those ranks. The meatball sandwich seems to be having a moment. Not that meatballs are new to the food scene. According to food historians, carniv-orbs go back centuries.

In a U.S. Hot Rod Association event at the Spectrum yesterday that was prompted by a television commercial about an invincible Volvo, drivers in big- wheeled pickup trucks playfully squished a row of junked Volvos. But it wasn't all that easy for the trucking behemoths, as the Black Stallion and other motorized bullies needed several passes to compress the Swedish automobiles.

She holds world records and titles in hot dogs, oysters, hard-boiled eggs, cheesecake, and chicken wings. Now she's moving on to meatballs. Sonya Thomas of Virginia, the top-ranked eater in America, will compete today in the Tropicana World Meatball-Eating Championship at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City. It will start at 1 p.m. at Carmine's Restaurant; whoever eats the most meatballs in 12 minutes wins $2,500. Prizes total $5,000. Bob Shoudt of Philadelphia is among those competing against the 100-pound Thomas in the event, sponsored by the International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE)

Police are looking for a pair of thieves who stole 17 cases of frozen meatballs from a tractor-trailer parked in Old City early today. But why anyone would steal 510 pounds of beef meatballs, they don't know. Police said the driver was sleeping inside the rig on the 500 block of North Columbus Boulevard when the thieves broke the trailer's seal and started unloading the frozen meat around 12:40 a.m. The driver of another truck discovered the heist while it was under way and two meatball thieves sped off in what appeared to be a brown Ford Windstar van.

Sometimes failure can end up tasting pretty good. It certainly was the case with these meatballs. I'd been aiming to create a solidly delicious, all-purpose meatball suitable for tossing with marinara over spaghetti. Except it didn't quite work out that way. The meatballs, while certainly delicious, were both too tangy and too sweet to pair with your basic pasta sauce. And they certainly didn't agree with the mandatory Parmesan that spaghetti calls for. So I tried them in a curry sauce.

It happens all the time, at least to me. There I am at the meat department, acres of concentrated protein spread out for my delectation. I am determined, for once, to have something besides chicken or fish, yet I am utterly stymied by the very vastness of the selection. For reasons some psychiatrist could probably fathom instantly, I usually end up buying ground round. But I don't make hamburgers, which tend, in spite of one's best efforts, to come out lunky and bland. Nor do I make meat loaf, which is simply too much food when one dines, as I often do, alone.

This recipe goes out to all those diehard meat-eaters who mistakenly believe vegetarian foods are for sissies. Govinda's Gourmet to Go, a little takeout stand at 15th and South, makes truly awesome meatless meatballs for a sandwich that will prove that meat-free can be delicious. The faux beef is made with fresh veggies and chickpea flour, plus seasonings like hing, a garlicky, bark-based spice from India, also known as asafetida, and garam masala, which are both available in Indian groceries or natural foods stores.

STOCKHOLM - Swedish furniture giant Ikea became entangled in Europe's widening meat scandal Monday, forced to withdraw meatballs from stores across Europe amid suspicions that they contained horse meat. Stores in the United States and Canada were not affected, Ikea said. The company reacted after authorities in the Czech Republic said they had detected horse DNA in tests of 1-kilogram (2.2-pound) packs of frozen meatballs that were labeled as beef and pork. The Czech State Veterinary Administration said that it tested two batches of Ikea meatballs and that only one of them contained horse meat.

AT 7:05 P.M., I arrive at Sarah Grey's house for "Friday Night Meatballs. " Considering that I'm sort of crashing this dinner party at her Fishtown home, I'm self-conscious about being the first guest in the door. The feeling worsens when I realize I've stupidly forgotten to bring something to contribute to the night's meal. I offer my hostess neither wine, dessert nor humble daisies for the table. I feel my smile freeze on my face. I am mortified. But the ever-chipper Grey, 35, is too chilled-out to notice (or at least to comment on)

ISSUE | SAFE STREETS A real meatball of a safety plan I have studied traffic engineering, and it's clear to me that the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is a partisan political group, not a panel of experts ("Pledge to cut crashes and fatalities in Philly," June 26). Changes to Philadelphia streets to accommodate cyclists' Vision Zero plan need to occur only after a proper debate that carefully considers the needs of all concerned. Vision Zero itself is a concept from Sweden, a country with far less stress on individual initiative, unacceptably rigid rules about behavior, and fewer automobiles.

THE ITALIAN Market just marked a century in business, and it didn't get there by catering to dietary fads. The vendors' hallmark in this area around 9th Street between Washington Avenue and Christian Street is patient, high-quality craftsmanship, developed over time. Originally established by old-world cheesemakers, butchers and sausage-grinders, and reveling in its traditional trappings, this is not where you'd look for trailblazing vegan foods. Sure, there are scattered options: Sabrina's Cafe (910 Christian St.)

When the five young men arrived for cooking class at Olney Elementary School, there was not one word of complaint from these middle schoolers - some pushing 6 feet tall - who had to squeeze into chairs meant for 5-year-olds. They donned their chef coats, washed up, took their seats around the table, opened their cookbooks, and took instruction from Joe Bradbury, a culinary instructor at Frankford High School, who volunteers with his wife, Che Che Bradbury, a teacher at Olney. The expansion of the My Daughter's Kitchen cooking program to Philadelphia and Camden schools was intended to teach more kids hands-on cooking skills while showing them how easy, tasty, and affordable healthy cooking can be. But what I saw when I visited this school in North Philadelphia was a dimension I never anticipated.

What to eat: Hmm, let's see . . . how about meatballs? Co-owner Mike Antinore wisely offers $3.50 single-meatball sliders, in case you're not ready for a whole hoagie, which runs $8.50. We find that two sliders and a bag of chips gets the job done, but he also offers a $10 lunch special: hoagie, chips and a bottle of water. The balls are pretty big. Don't miss : The menu changes, but the original "Mama's Ball" is a blend of beef, pork and veal in a homemade sauce. Also try the "Datz-A-Spicy Ball," with hot sausage and jalapeno cheese.

Gabe and Judy Marabella were ahead of the trendy meatball curve when they opened their eponymous shop three years ago, a quick-serve and takeout devoted solely to the homey balls made famous over the years at their popular Marabella's restaurants. So it was no surprise (to us) that they should be counted among the nation's finest in Food & Wine's recent list of America's best meatballs, with a saucy beauty shot of a meatball hoagie glazed in tangy provolone. Even so, the national nod was a fine occasion to revisit, and I was reminded just how convenient their grab-and-go meatball meal is on a busy weekday night, complete with box of pasta (you boil it at your place)
