The Last of B'More

inside Jimmy John's
So I finally have enough time to sit down and catch you all up on the last month of my life.

I loved Baltimore so much! Thanks to my cousin, I was able to go on an impromptu campus tour of Towson University.  I was so excited that at first I didn't notice that the campus was desolate due to Spring Break.  See, I had applied to work at Towson, so I just wanted to see all that I could while I was in the area...come to find out that by the time I got back to Cali they had already filled the position.  Can you say disappointed...slightly heartbroken!?

The Food
In the mean time I was able to explore some of the sites and enjoyed my time in the city.  First I had the infamous Jimmy John's!  To be honest, they're good sandwiches at a reasonable price, but overall I wasn't that impressed.  I could make that turkey sandwich myself. 

Lamb Kebab Meze
I had Turkish food for the first time at this restaurant around the corner from our hotel on Charles Street.  It was open at 11pm when Ashley and I walked in...apparently it was belly-dancing night upstairs in their make-shift club.  Back to the food...I had this dish called Manti.  it's like a Turkish ravioli with creamy plain yogurt on top.  It's a doughy dumpling stuffed with minced meat, in my case lamb, and its covered in a cool plain Greek yogurt with fresh cracked pepper.  The second dish was a traditional lamb kebab. To put a little night cap on it, l0l, I had Turkish tea...so good!

And of course I couldn't be in Maryland without having some crab cakes!  We went to Mo's Crab & Pasta Factory which was featured on a few shows on the Food Network.  It was honestly the best Seafood that I ever had...EVER!  There portions for their lunch specials were the size of dinner plates for that could feed two people.  Although they were a little pricey, I didn't mind because of how big the plates were.  I had the Blackened Rockfish (a white fish) stuffed with Crab Imperial (a extra special crab cake).  The size of the fish was about half of the plate and then it was stuffed with a crab cake the size of a softball.  This came over a bed of roasted red potatoes and a side of steamed veggies...all smothered in butter.

The last night I was in Baltimore, I had the worst service (and food) at this placed called Kona Grill...yuck!  But you know me, I had to find the silver lining. And I found it in this drink called Blushing Geisha, I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a fruity drink that's strong, but sneaks up on you.

The Fun
After our "last super" my B'More crew (Ana, James, Ashley, and I) went out for some more drinks at this bar in the Inner Harbor area called Power Plant live.  It's very reminiscent of the Universal Studios CityWalk, and lets just say there was a few people dancing on poles and table tops!  Those margaritas were delish!


  1. Good, I'm glad you had a fun time in Baltimore!! Mo's is THE BEST seafood around, I went there not too long ago. Come again soon, hon! *waves*
