What’s On The Menu showcases Baltimore’s masterful chefs and the most creative, unique eateries in town. While chefs prepare a signature dish from their menu, they share stories from the kitchen and how the city has inspired their cooking. They also give tips, tricks and cooking hacks that will surely come in handy for anyone in the kitchen.

On this latest episode of What’s On the Menu?, we take you to some Baltimore restaurants serving dynamic flavors from around the world.

Mexican on the Run

There’s nothing better than street food in Baltimore, and this food truck proves that point. The lack of Mexican cuisine in the food truck industry created a passion for showing the Baltimoreans the culture. The most popular menu item is the birria queso tacos with the marinade made straight from mama’s family recipe.  

Ekiben

Here at Ekiben, the twist on Asian fusion is unique and simple. The energy is high, and the food is made with the freshest ingredients that produce rich flavors. Named after the bento boxed meal that is sold at train stations in Japan, this establishment creates unique dishes. People come for the best sandwich around, the Neighborhood Bird. The steamed bun takes three days to make and is a family secret, so don’t ask!
