Maybe it’s not so surprising that there are relatively few soul food restaurants around here, given our northerly-ness, but Baltimore really has a sore lack. Just a few miles west of downtown on Route 40, though, there is Kimmy’s, pretty much the soul food Mecca for these parts. It’s a huge buffet, and nearly everything is awesome, including the all too elusive real and good mac and cheese. Greens are excellent, fried chicken and fish are crisp and well-seasoned. Pigs are comprehensively represented, from maw to ribs to chitterlings, right down to the feet. And, um, there’s also lo mein and fried rice, since, yeah, it’s run by Asians, but hey, it’s the 21st century man, and the food speaks for itself.
