What: Brown Rice Korean Grill

Where: 2404 N Charles St

When: Monday-Saturday, 11am-9pm

What do fast food and fresh, healthy food have in common? Nothing, you think? That’s what I would think too if I didn’t know about Brown Rice Korean Grill. Focusing on fresh and tasty, Brown Rice serves several traditional Korean dishes like dumplings, Kimchi stew, and scallion pancakes.

Despite this already delicious menu, this restaurant’s most popular dish is Bibimap. Like a Chipotle for Korean food, Brown Rice has tons of fresh ingredients out for you to pick what you want in order to customize your Bibimap bowl. With meats from tofu to squid to pork, all the veggies you can dream of, and tons of classic sauces like mango sauce, soy sauce, and Deonjang that Bibimap bowl combos are endless!

What: Joe Benny’s Focacceria

Where: 313 S High St

When: Hours

On a mission to bring a piece of Sicily back to Baltimore, Joseph Gardella created Joe Benny’s. A fresh take on the Italian food we all love, this charming restaurant is serving up some amazing focaccia paninis and a variety of Sicilian pizzas. The bread used for all the food at Joe Benny’s is a one of a kind goodness that will you you straight to Italy and have you craving more as soon as you’re done.

As if this authentic food wasn’t enough, the atmosphere of Joe Benny’s Focacceria is authentic as well. This small, cute area is a place “about having a great time and enjoy life one bite (and sip) at a time” as Gardella promotes. With such a personality, the restaurant reminds you of a place in Sicily where locals would go. Between the awesome Italian food and the well-captured Italian atmosphere Joe Benny’s is really the highlight of Little Italy.
