Nam Kang

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.


Best of Baltimore Winner:

Best Late-Night Dining

Nam Kang is the king of late-night dining. This Korean restaurant’s 4 a.m. closing time has cemented many friendships and facilitated countless hookups over the last decade. When the bars close and the conversation is too good to quit, you’re not quite sure if you want to get naked with that new acquaintance, or you’re just plain starved, Nam Kang is almost the only place to go.
