When we went to Baltimore for the Gold Cup we decided to go a few hours early and grab lunch before hand. Ivan wanted to try crab cakes and I wanted to try one of the fantastic Baltimore diners that have been featured on tv.
We did a bit of research on the drive down and decided on Sip & Bite. This amazing little establishment was featured on Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives. They are famous for their crab cake sandwiches, so we knew we found a winner.
The diner had a really cool vibe, it was retro yet modern at the same time. They had all the fun diner touches, like the bar counter with the vintage red stools, but everything was very clean, crisp and cool.
The diner is a third generation restaurant and opened in 1948. From what I can tell they recently did a renovation, because it looks a bit differently in the diners, drive-ins and dives episode.
Ivan ordered the famous crab cake sandwich with lettuce, tomato and tarter sauce. Our waitress was awesome and helped us figure out what we wanted on the sandwich. She thought it was fantastic that we selected Sip & Bite for our first crab cake experience. She informed us we had to order it grilled as opposed to broiled or deep fried. Apparently that’s the best. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I do know that sandwich was beyond delicious.
I of course went with the lamb gyro. Because that’s my go to diner food. I just cannot get enough of gyros. We swapped a few bites though. I really wanted to try that crab cake and Ivan is always down for a gyro. So it’s all good.I left feeling so stuffed. But it was worth it. If you’re ever in Baltimore, go check out the crab cake sandwich from Sip & Bite. Don’t forget to ask for it grilled ;)
