Need Carry-Out Help in Fells Point..

So I work in Fells Point and am running out of ideas for places in walking distance to grab carry-out lunches - any hidden places I've been missing or do I just need to start packing more?

The list of places I've exhausted:

Red Star
Kawasaki Cafe
La Tortilleria
Waterfront Hotel
One-Eyed Mikes Deli

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

  1. The crepe place on Broadway.
    Blue House has some interesting food, as does Teaevolve (Teaology?)?

    And under the category of "I've not really paid attention to these places," are any of the following open for lunch (or just open): Smedley's (on Wolfe Street), Lulus, Bonaparte Breads, Petticoat Team Room?

      I was just at Teavolve this morning (on Eastern) and had a delicious quiche. I noticed they do have a short, but nice looking, list of made-to-order paninis for lunch, as well as smoothies and iced teas.

      And while it is not exactly local (and can get pricey) I know folks who walk to whole food for carry out.

    2. There are no places in the Broadway market? There have to be a couple of finds in there, right? Anyone?

        Unfortunately, other than One Eyed Mike's Market, not really. I used to get my grease fix at Philly Gil's before they closed down. I know other people enjoy the place in the South Market with "Baltimore's Best Cheesesteaks", but I'm not much of a fan. I hope that I'm just missing something there, but I kind of doubt it....

          I usually only go there for breakfast, but Theresa's in the south market building used to have pretty good shrimp salad.

            I second Theresa's. Also a good steak sub (I like mine with grilled fresh green peppers in addition to LTM). Her potato chips are Utz's straight from the can. ( Utz- Something I neglected to mention when Baltoellen was preparing for her trip out west.) Theresa's soups are usually excellent and the place is always clean as it is easy to see.

        2. Don't miss Burritos En Fuego. Absolutely the best mexican i've ever tasted. You will never get tired of it because of the salsa options. Wow, just thinking about it makes me sad I dont' work in Fells Pt anymore.

            I have found that at Burritos en Fuego everything jsut tastes hot. I like spicy food but there food has no flavor besides hot. I make sure if I eat from there (which is rare) to get no salsda which is unfortunate since I love salsa.

              You could walk north on Broadway a bit and hit Carolina's or the taco truck!

              And, Kawasaki? Are they opened under a new, non-sweatshop owners?

          2. It might be too obvious, but does your walking distance include corned beef row?

            1. Hot Tomatoes for a deep-fried sandwich.

                Love Attmans - if its nice out, I can make the hike, but I'm right off of Thames, on the water, so its a bit of a distance when busy. Thanks for all the suggestions so far...

                  Don't walk past Weis Deli on Lombard, they make a great Cloak and Dagger and the best pickles....a shorter walk by about 100 yds

                  1. re: Hue

                    Yes, Pink Petticoat is open for lunch: great crab cakes and Asian salad, good bread, friendly and reasonable. Try it out and report back
