Locals don't mind traveling a few miles to downtown Baltimore for the wide variety of ethnic cuisines. Puerto 511 serves authentic Peruvian food and rates as one of the best restaurants in Baltimore. Regulars highly recommend the sweet yet savory ceviche clasico and say the lomo saltado, a Peruvian staple, makes the perfect entree. The dish comes with traditional Peruvian-style beef tenderloin, sauteed onions, tomatoes, cilantro, soy sauce, garlic, hand-cut fries, and steamed white rice. Top off this experience with Peruvian toast for dessert.
Locals also enjoy Joe Benny's in the Little Italy
district. With five stars across the board for quality of food, service, and prices, this establishment is a culinary gem. Regulars adore the salami-and-cheese appetizer, which comes with an assortment of cured meats and Italian cheeses. On your first visit, order the eggplant panini or fiore pizza.
Supreme Oasis Bakery and Deli serves the best fried fish in town. Complement your dinner with the famous macaroni and cheese and bean pie. If you crave a more-traditional deli-style meal, delight in the turkey breast sandwich, but call ahead if you have time constraints because this place gets packed.
