Where: 1622 Eastern Ave
When: mon thru saturday
I think everyone needs to stop on by Ekiben in Fells Point soon, and I mean yesterday… It is great. From taking Fells by food truck Ekiben, an “asian comfort food” (baltimoresun.com) destination, has moved up the ranks to an old fashioned store front! And we could not be more excited! As a smaller restaurant this could possibly be your new go to places in Fells Point for take-out. Go for The Original or the Neighborhood Bird with side of Tempura Broccoli to split with your friends you will not be disappointed!

What: Kooper’s Tavern Brunch
Where: Historic Fells Point
Come on down to fells this weekend…weather is to suppose to balm(y)… and head to Kooper’s Tavern for a great brunch option or lunch if you’re not and never-will-be-a-brunch-person.
I had the pleasure of brunching at Kooper’s this past weekend; I jump started my early afternoon with an excellent table look out onto Thames and the water in Historic Fells Point. And then dove into the Cream of Crab… perfect brunch starter right? But, the Cream of Crab was so delicious I would’ve ate a vat of it.
Kooper’s does have a mean brunch, I got the French toast with whip cream and cinnamon and it was simply perfect. Or bite into a Fish Sandwich for lunch; blackened Atlantic Cod, avocado (amazing), fried onion straws, and cilantro lime aioli make this the perfect sandwich.
Stop on by to Kooper’s this weekend!

What: Canton Dockside
Where: 3301 Boston St. BMORE
Yes Baltimore is known for crabs, we all know that.
We know that because they are so so so good… especially at Canton Dockside.
Stop by Boston St to devour some amazing crab the classic Bmore way; knife and chisel in hand. Canton Dockside has the freshest crabs out there as they deal directly with the fishermen. If you’re not into cracking some shells no worries, they have plenty of other options that are less work intensive. Start off with a Crab Pretzel; a homemade pretzel with their delicious crab dip on top. Then move to a crab bisque (my personal fave) and maybe scoop an oyster or two (I promise it’s easy). Next, lets bite into a Blue Crab burger, or an Oyster Sandwich.
As you can see Canton Dockside has a wealth of seafood options for you to munch on.

What: Bar Clavel
Where: 225 West 23rd Street, Baltimore, MD
Tacos, Chips, and Salsa, three words that bring a genuine wave of happiness over me. I don’t know you, but I bet it does for you too.
To go along with an excellent ambiance is some appetizing food. I was once told by a friend from Mexico that the staple for her family is the tortilla, apparently Bar Clavel follows the same principle as they make homemade gluten-free tortillas. Their meat is pure quality and organic, something not always seen these days. Bite in to a Chambarete taco (remember those home made tortillas) and taste the juicy angus beef steak and tantalizing spices! Or, take a spoonful (a big one) of Caldo de Verduras made of corn, cabbage, chayote, carrot, calabaza, and green beans! There are plenty of options for you and your friends to enjoy!
Soooo, I am highly recommending you stop by Bar Clavel for an ultra hipster night of taco eating and guac dipping.

What: B. Doughnut Artisanal Doughnuts
Where: 3528 Chestnut Ave, B-MORE
When: Wed-Sun 8am-1pm (or sell out)
I love my doughnuts. I live for my doughnuts. And, thanks to B. Doughnut I can branch out of my old-fashion plain and try a Hibiscus Pistachio.
B. Doughnut is an artisan, hand-crafted doughnut shop that takes pride in what they sell. They do not believe in the mass produced products, they focus on quality doughnuts for doughnut connoisseurs, like me, to truly appreciate and devour. But, if you want a taste of that new strawberry creme doughnut you have to get to there quickly in the morning because they close when they sell out! If you’re in the mood for an original taste and I feel that and I respect it, and so does B. Doughnut; take a bite out of their chocolate cream, berry jam, or vanilla bean. Nom nom everyone!
Follow them on Instagram @b_doughnut and click here for more information on their amazing doughnuts. Should I say doughnuts one more time? Doughnuts.

What: The Nickel Taphouse
Where: 1604 Kelly Ave, Baltimore, MD
For all of your foodie Friday lovers out there I have a delicious seafood option for you! The Nickel Taphouse located near Mount Washington is going to be your go to place for oysters and the like! Whether you are stopping in for brunch or for a nice sit down dinner you will not be disappointed!
If you are more a morning person (but not really because its brunch) there are plenty of options for you, you can go with the not-so-classic classic brunch featuring Eggs in Hell which includes three eggs, tomato sauce, parmesan, olives, crostini and for some spice in your life Jalapenos.
For dinner I would recommend the iced oysters… wouldn’t mind some right now actually! These are delicious along side a chopped salad!
Bottom line—head to The Nickel Taphouse.
