Federal Hill: Shoyou Sushi

If you’re looking for sushi in Baltimore, you’re bound to come across more than one recommendation for Shoyou Sushi or ‘Sushi Bruce’ in Fed Hill. I had heard that Chef Bruce had the freshest fish and the best creations and it’s within walking distance from where I live. […]

Mount Vernon: Trinacria

If you ask around for the best Italian deli in Baltimore, you will find two different types of people. People who are team Di Pasquales, and people who are team Trinacria. Di Pasquales is in Highlandtown and Trinacria is in Mount Vernon; I’ve already fallen in love with Di Pasquales but Mount Vernon is a little closer […]

Fells Point: Slainte

Some friends from college and I were meeting for brunch and decided to try out Slainte in Fells Point. Mainly, because it was recently on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. But also because I love corned beef hash, and I would guess that an Irish Pub would make a better […]
