A few weeks ago, a friend and I tried brunch at SoBo Cafe and it was wonderful, to say the least. A friend and I couldn’t wait to go back to SoBo Cafe for dinner. A friend and I were looking for a low-key Friday evening and it was Baltimore Restaurant week so we decided to make a reservation for SoBo Cafe in Fed Hill. SoBo Cafe has plenty of American dishes with a Mediterranean twist.
Upon looking over the menu we remembered how amazing the food was and were thrilled we could try a little bit of everything because it was Restaurant Week. My friend decided to start with the Mac-n-Cheese because that’s what she ordered last time we were at SoBo Cafe and she loved it. Let me reiterate, this was the best Mac-n-Cheese either of us have ever had. She basically licked the plate clean.
For my appetizer, I ordered the Spinach Pie. It was crispy phyllo stuffed with spinach and feta cheese. My Grandmother is Greek, I grew up with her making Spinach Pie semi-regularly, this rendition was delicious and tasted just as good as my Grandmothers (good thing she doesn’t have an internet connection or I’d get stabbed.) The pastry chef at SoBo Cafe has magical skills (but more about that later) because that phyllo was buttery, flaky and perfect.
For our main courses, my friend and I each decided to order the Dry Rubbed Bavette Steak. It came with bacon onion butter, creamed spinach and roasted fingerling potatoes. The steak was cooked medium-rare, just how I like it and packed with flavor. Personally, I love creamed spinach with steak and the one here was perfectly creamy.
We did see a bunch of people order the chicken pot pie and it was served with a beautiful looking puff pastry on top, if CPP is your thing I would suggest ordering that.
For dessert, I saw that SoBo Cafe advertised they offer Sangria Ice Pops. The ice pop had strawberries, pineapple and a little bit of a fruity wine flavor. It was delicious, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re trying to get drunk.
In addition to my ice pop, we each got a dessert with our meal. My friend can be a little on the picky side and opted for the Brownie Sundae for her dessert which was not on the restaurant week menu. It was served with a warm brownie, two scoops of vanilla ice cream, house made caramel AND house made marshmallow fluff. My friend was beyond full, but still made every effort to finish this delicious dessert.
For my dessert, I ordered the Strawberry Shortcake because I saw a man at another table eat it and it looked wonderful. It was a sweet biscuit with rhubarb sauce, basil and whipped cream. This was off the charts amazing. Whatever the pastry chef did to that biscuit to make it flavorful and buttery, it was pure magic.
In short, our meal at SoBo Cafe was wonderful and I really can’t say enough things about the meal as a whole or anything wonderful that the pastry chef creates. If you’re looking for a spot to eat dinner in Fed Hill, SoBo Cafe is definitely a great spot to go.
