Great Plates of Late Around South Baltimore

Smothered Chicken at Southrn’ Spice 

Southrn’ Spice recently opened at Cross Street Market serving up different dishes from the south.

On a recent trip to the market I ordered the Smothered Chicken entrée. The chicken quarter was baked and covered with a house-made barbecue sauce. It was very juicy with the sauce having a nice combo of spicy and sweet.

The entrée comes with two sides, and I got the cabbage and red beans and rice. Both were a great addition to the meal.

Bison Burger at Abbey Burger Bistro 

Abbey Burger Bistro has so many good looking burgers that making a decision can be a challenge.

Last time I stopped in I opted for the Southwest Bison Burger. It is a great patty of bison topped with jalapeños, salsa, avocado, pepper jack cheese, and créme fraiche on a brioche bun.

It was an amazing combination of flavors and the side of house-made chips were delicious as always.

Hamburger at Hull Street Blues

Sticking with burgers, I got the hamburger to-go from Hull Street Blues in Locust Point recently. The burger has Creekstone Farms Black Angus beef and it’s served on a brioche roll. You can top it as you want, and I added cheese.

The beef is super flavorful and the burger was cooked a perfect medium rare. The hand-cut fries on the side were great, too.

Turkey Powerhouse at City Limits Sports Bar

City Limits has a large bar menu and I was happy to stumble upon the Turkey Powerhouse sandwich on my last visit. It has sliced turkey, hummus, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, lettuce, and tomato on a toasted multigrain bread.

It was such a fresh and flavorful sandwich, and I will definitely be getting it again.
