Best Cheap Lunch

$1 Coddies at Vikki’s Fells Point Deli

600 S. Broadway, (410) 276-6996

Coddies used to be everywhere in Baltimore. The little deep-fried balls of fish and potatoes, served between two saltine crackers with a dab of yellow mustard, were the “poor man’s crab cakes” that for most of the 20th century went for a nickel or less. Now they’re a buck, and are hard to find. Thankfully, Vikki’s Fells Point Deli in the Broadway Market serves them. Other than their tastiness, their best quality is that you can tailor your order to your appetite: Six will fill up an empty belly real quick, while one’ll do just fine for a quick snack on the run.
