Baltimore: Looking for the Grit and Soul of the City

Jeffsayyes | May 30, 201205:46 PM     170

I've done this before in Montreal http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/794211
Philadelphia http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/808479
New Orleans http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/829768
and maybe Pittsburgh (can't find the link)...

I'm going for the first time to Baltimore in a couple of weeks and I know next to nothing about it. All I have is a premonition that there is some great, gritty, real food there. I'm coming from NYC, so we have access to lots of great Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and other ethnicities, but what I'm looking for in particular are regional foods that the locals go wild over.

I want to find the soul of the city.

The threads I've seen here seem a little... high brow? No way the words 'splurge' and 'high brow' are going to be on my itinerary....

and if you have any other experiences I should check out, I'm all ears.
