Tour of Samos

Greektown: Samos

In Greektown, just north of Canton, there is an abundance of Greek restaurants (duh), but only one of them offers a whole menu tour of their Greek offerings. A friend heard about Samos offering their ‘Tour of Samos’ and figured it would be the perfect group outing. After […]

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 […]

Hampden: Souvlaki

Canton: Pie 360

Update: Pie 360 is now closed. I’ve been to Coal Fire Pizza in Columbia a handful of times and I always love what I have. When I heard the group behind Coal Fire was opening a make your own pizza place in Canton, I was thrilled. Pie 360 […]

Federal Hill: 3 Bean

There’s no shortage of coffee shops in Baltimore, that’s for sure. However, for the most part they’re located in Hampden or Mount Vernon, unfortunately, there are very few in Federal Hill. Fortunately for me, 3 Bean Coffee just opened in Federal Hill and they brew Counter Culture Coffee which is […]
