A Station North bike shop with a focus on environmentally sustainable and socially conscious practices. Open to bikers of any variety. Includes bike repair and maintenance and custom frame building.
Caribbean main and side dishes to sit in or take-out like curried goat, jerk chicken, plantains, and red beans and rice.
The Zodiac restaurant next door may have closed, but the kitchen has re-opened, and Club Charles is serving up pretty much the same menu.
The cheap, cheap lunch buffet (still $4.95) at last count has created a lunchtime following. But dinner has its own rewards--a BYOB policy and a sweet, candlelit dining room tended to by the charismatic Davinder Singh. Remember to start with a bowl of fresh lentil soup, and tell your vegetarian friends about the vegetable thaali, a meal-sized assortment of delicious samosas and pakoras.
"Joe Squared looks like an off-campus dive bar, and that's a large part of its charm. Depending on who you are (scenester or square), you'd rate the ambiance with four stars or none. The large-format square pizzas are noteworthy for their thin crusts and creatively devised specialty toppings: an Irish pizza with corned beef, caramelized onions, mozzarella, and Swiss; a chicken, corn, and apple version with Granny Smiths and Vidalias; another with meatballs and spaghetti. Pasta dishes and ample entrée salads are also available. Start with wings or the good stuffed focaccia, and bear in mind the dodgy location."
On its web site, Joung Kak describes itself as “charming and strong . . . an iron pot full of delightful and exciting foods.” This actually rather neatly describes Joung Kak's house specialty: do-it-yourself tabletop grilling. The accommodating staff brings a brazier of glowing wood coals to your booth and provides a platter of tidbits for grilling thereon plus another piled with garnishes. (The fearless may want to go with the full Joung Kak experience, featuring slices of tripe, beef tendons, and liver, but maybe it's best to begin with short ribs and sliced tenderloin.) Don't worry, they stick around to show you what to do, and which garnishes go with what grilled viand. Karaoke every night after 8, and Joung Kak serves until 4 a.m.
Nam Kang is the granddaddy of Baltimore Korean restaurants, the first to open in an otherwise bleak section of midtown. Nam Kang's lunch menu is a great way for the uninitiated to become acquainted with the hot (chile peppers), sour (kimchi), and rich (fermented black bean paste) flavors of Korean cuisine. For truly bargain prices you can pick from all the Korean classics--bulgogi, jampong, bibimbap--and feast on the array of panchan, little bowls of treats like kimchi and sesame bean sprouts, that accompany each order. But any time is fine to dine at Nam Kang, which stays open until 4 a.m. to keep the world supplied with bubbling hotpots of seafood stew.
"Everybody loves Nino's! We have the best quality and prices in town."
Tiny can't begin to describe this kiosk/café tucked between Charles and Everyman theatres. But good things come in small packages and, besides, who needs to sit to eat crêpes? Sofi's “savory” crêpes, like ham and cheese, are pretty filling sandwiches. There are also “sweet” crêpes, with fillings like butterscotch, chocolate, and Nutella. The savory selections are good, and a nice change of pace from the usual sandwich shops, but Nutella smeared on a warm crêpe is a thing of the gods.
Tapas Teatro should get big credit for ushering in the era of small-plate dining to Baltimore. Happily, there is now a plethora of local places slinging small plates of everything from pan-Asian fusion to Mediterranean tidbits, but we keep coming back to the Teatro for its classic Spanish tapas. There are plenty of garlicky, spicy treats, and most of the meats benefit from char-grilling over a wood fire. Sangría is the classic tapas companion, and when it is enjoyed by the pitcher (surrounded by stacks of recently emptied plates of grilled calamari or skewered tenderloin or roasted eggplant) at one of the eatery's sidewalk tables, life is good, indeed.
