Hungrily Hunting the Hill….January 14, 2010 at 12:00 am | Posted in Dinner | 2 Comments
Hi Food Blogger World, This is Laura (Elizabeth’s sis) guest blogging for the first time. I went downtown Saturday with some art school friends to Federal Hill. We were planning on going to go to Dangerously Delicious Pie’s … But they are closed til the 15th. We kept walking and I called my foodie sister who advised me to go to Spoons on Cross St and they said the kitchen was closed, it was only 4:00! Anyhow, we got advice from the guys in the shop who told us to head down the block to a place called Metropolitan. We started down the street but were stopped cold in our tracks. CREPES! Who doesn’t love a crepe? This was a very good find.
The name of the place is Ruben’s Crepe’s. His crepe shop was unique and had a large array of fillings for his crepes. My friend Kat enjoyed a nutella, strawberries and bananas crepe. Kris had a egg, apple, swiss, cracked pepper and bacon crepe. Pio had an ham, apple, spinach, meunster cheese crepe. I had the NEW one Salsa-Verde, Beans, cheese, chorizo. This was tasty but very hot. For the time of day (between lunch and dinner) I should have got something sweeter. Overall a good bite to eat in the cold weather. This was a small and cozy space and is reasonably priced- $1.00 for coffee and $6.00 – $ 9.00 for the crepes. The fillings are generous and the shop has only been open for a WEEK but he had nice tables and a relaxed atmosphere. Go for the jump to see the menu!
