Fells Point Restaurants
800 S Broadway, Baltimore, MD 21231
While some consider food trucks grungy, city-dwellers know that some of the finest cuisine is hidden within mobile eateries. Ekiben is an Asian fusion food truck with a dedicated following, and it sets up shop just down the street from 1305 Dock Street Apartments. On Saturday mornings at the Fells Point Farmers Market, you can find this little truck passing out decadent Bao and rice bowls. The best part? Ebiken is looking to open a storefront in Fells Point very soon.
Thames Street Oyster House

Sometimes it feels right to forgo the savory meal and skip straight to the sweet. Gelato is just rich and filling enough to be a dinner substitute, and the apotheosis of creameries is right around the corner. Pitango Gelato offers everything from your generic stracciatella (chocolate chip) to such eccentric flavors as white grapefruit, black tea, and milk & honey. They also carry hot coffee and various flavors of sorbet, if you’re craving caffeine or just something lighter than the Italian classic.
