What else am I missing in Baltimore?
I just went to Trinacria the first time today. It is shameful--I go to the University and park at Lexington market! I've driven past it many times; its outside is so unpreposessing. Finally I stumbled inside and discovered the wealth of Italian foods--good pasta, amazing bread and wine. Then I ate the sandwiches and thought I may die from happiness. All this and cheap as well.
I feel like this exemplifies a lot of Baltimore--not showy, but just plain good. Often, one needs to be clued in to these little gems. I wanted to mention one of them, and to find out other places that I may be missing because I am simply walking by them. Ideas?
There are a couple quintissential Baltimore eats.
pit beef - i prefer pioneer to chaps
berger's cookies - found in lexington market
crabcake - found all over the area and @ faidley's in lexington market
pizza - either matthew's or iggie's. matthew's is more like a buttery pan crust compared to iggie's thin gourmet pizza
corned beef sw - the famed corned beef row on lombard, there are 3 places: lenny's, attman's and weiss
there's also a greek area of town, samos does gyro pretty well but i think the best gyro in the area is at "never on sunday"
