I know, I know, its been nearly a year since I’ve put my MvF travels on hiatus. But, just like Mad Men, I’m back after a long break to tell you what I think of Baltimore’s eateries. I can only write about two of the three locations, because Obrycki’s has closed their main restaurant, only to be found in the city’s airports. So if you fly into Charm City, eat there, and let me know how it is.
First, Chap’s Pit Beef. Not only is this place on the show, but Adam Richman tweets about it often. So I knew there must be something good going on there. My mom had a pulled pork BBQ sandwich, but I had the pit beef sandwich. I smothered it in their house BBQ sauce (even though they had the best sauce, Sweet Baby Ray’s). I got my meat well done, and it was perfectly tender. I can only describe the taste as a cross between roast beef and smoked beef. It was really good, no fat, no grease, just a simple, tasty sandwich. Not only that, the sandwich was under $7. Good call, Adam!
Now, for Steak & Main, I had to defer to my father. Since I won’t be getting to Baltimore again any time soon, I thought I would ask my dad to tell me about his dining experience at the place where Adam did a food challenge. In fact, my dad was there only a few weeks after Adam did the challenge! Unfortunately, my dad doesn’t remember what he ate when he was there. He does remember liking it, but I couldn’t get him to elaborate. So, with that helpful advice, if I do get down there again, I’ll be sure to come back with a more thorough report.
Even though there were no Michael Phelps sightings, this was another successful dining trip to a lovely city. My next MvF travels will be the Jersey Shore episode (about time, I know.) Enjoy!
