Pit Beef from The Canopy
Being a native of Baltimore, you have to appreciate the joy of pit beef sandwiches. Arby's artificial meat product stands no chance against beatiful medium rare slices of beef slabs roasted about a fire pit. I have friends in Ellicott City, and they turned me on to The Canopy on Rt. 40 because it's a block from their house.
I hope to explore more pit beef in the area, but The Canopy is a darn good start. The sandwich I had yesterday was rare enough that in layers, it became a little bloody. On top, I had horseradish, mayo and onion, all in a kaiser roll.
Additionally, the fries at The Canopy are great- fresh cut potatoes fried in peanut oil and salted. To drink, of course, birch beer!
