The tongue, being a strong muscle, finds its mouth-feel improved when suspended in jelly and sliced very thinly. That’s just how Sophia’s Place serves beef tongue—a generous helping, heaped between slices of your choice of bread (we picked pumpernickel), along with horseradish mustard and fresh tomato and lettuce ($5.99). The Polish deli and confectionery has stretched out in the newly refurbished south end of Fells Point’s Broadway Market, and now has counter space along with a much more capacious spread than its cramped old stall in the north building. Its expanded menu includes paninis (the Black Forest ham, Havarti cheese, tomato, arugula, and rosemary aioli on rye [$6.35] is to die for), sandwiches, Polish specialties (including fresh sausage and sauerkraut for $4.99), four kinds of soup at $2.49 per cup or $2.69 per bowl (one, of course, is red borscht), and sweet crepes (two for $5.49). While you’re there, pick up some pierogis to cook up at home.
