Highlandtown: Matthew’s Pizza

If you ask around for the best pizza in Baltimore, I’m sure more than one person will mention Matthew’s Pizza in Highlandtown. Matthew’s has been a city institution since 1943 serving old-world (deep dish) style pizza. My friend loves Our House which serves the same style of pizza as Matthew’s. In an effort to […]

Highlandtown: Di Pasquale’s

Di Pasquale’s is an authentic Italian Deli just north of Canton. I had heard great things and they were featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. For lunch a friend and I could’t what we were in the mood for, I wanted a sandwich and she wanted something Italian. I had […]
