Catonsville, Maryland– a quaint little town situated just twenty minutes outside of hustling and bustling Baltimore. Although Catonsville may be small, it has a lot to offer when it comes to delicious eats for college students! Here are some of my personal favorites(not ranked in a particular order):
- Grilled Cheese and Company.
Who doesn’t love the ultimate comfort food grilled cheese? This casual joint offers unique takes on this classic from The Sweetest Thing(with brie, raspberry mascarpone, and chocolate chips) to the famous Crabby Melt(crab meat and monterey jack). It also offers delicious soups, salads, and fries. Perfect for a rainy day!
2. Pho Saigon.
With its colorful tiled-ceiling and comfortable chairs, Pho Saigon will make you feel right at home. Their large portions of pho, Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles and meat, will leave you beyond stuffed! Pho Saigon’s Man vs. Pho Challenge rewards customers brave enough to consume 2 lbs. of meat and Pho noodles under thirty minutes. Will you take up the challenge?
3. Sushi Q.
You know you’re getting your money’s worth when you see their broad array of sushi and other Japanese specialties. Sushi Q offers maki rolls such as the Angry Lobster, which consists of shrimp tempura, cucumber, avocado, and lobster salad. How crazy is that? And who could say no to complimentary cheesecake after your meal? So good!
4. Uma Uma.
Their ramen soups made miso happy(haha get it?). Uma Uma specializes in different types of ramen from the classic miso, to shoyu, tonkotsu, and more! Their gyozas(Japanese dumplings) and takoyaki(octopus snack) were delicious as well. 10/10, would go again 🙂
Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, or a leisurely meal to be enjoyed with friends and family, Catonsville is the place to be!
