While running a few errands out in Perry Hall, my friend and I got hungry for lunch. My friend suggested Ravage Deli, she works nearby and has heard plenty of great things about this little deli. It even won best deli in Baltimore in 2013. That information by itself was enough and we headed over.
The space is small, but the menu is expansive. We decided to start with an order of Duck Fat Fries and this was a great decision. These fries were hand cut and then fried in duck fat and topped with parmesan, cracked pepper and chives. We shared a small, which was more than plenty, but I couldn’t help feeling disappointed when we finished the dish because they were delicious.
My friend decided to order the Angus Chili because it was a special when we visited. The chili wasn’t too spicy but packed with plenty of ground beef, beans and other spices and then topped with a light sprinkling of cheese. It was the perfect dish on a cold winter day.
My friend also ordered a Grilled Cheese, at Ravage Deli you can customize your grilled cheese by choosing the bread and cheese. My friend chose texas toast topped with American cheese. While this may be the most boring grilled cheese combination someone can invent, it was still very good and satisfied my friends craving.
For my meal, I went with the Slow Cooked Beef Brisket Sandwich. The sandwich came with house smoked beef brisket, Vermont cheddar cheese, crispy fried shallots, tangy barbeque sauce, on a toasted brioche bun. This sandwich was great and I’d drive out to Perry Hall for another one in an instant.
