GoodEats: Adventure awaits in Charles Village

12 March 2014 By Taylor Seidel, Columnist No Comments

If you’re in the mood for traditional Indian food or maybe classic American cuisine, I have the restaurant for you.  If you answered yes or are just looking for some amazing food then check out Tambers Restaurant in Charles Village.  Nestled off of St. Paul Street in downtown Baltimore, this ‘50s inspired diner-esque restaurant has been satisfying people since 1991.  A restaurant in Baltimore that serves both Indian cuisine and western classics; you are sure to find something appetizing.

There is no point dragging this column on about other smaller details. All that needs to be mentioned is the unbelievable food.  Highlighted by authentic Indian classics done the right way.  A chicken tikka masala that competes with some of the best I’ve ever had.  Perfectly blending chunks of chicken with a silky aromatic masala sauce.  For the adventurous type I suggest any of the Tandoori dishes.  These meats are marinated in aromatic spices and cooked in a traditional clay oven trapping all of the juices inside.  Whichever Indian delicacy you choose, please (I beg you) get a side of naan bread.  This soft yet crunchy flatbread is the perfect vessel for mopping up the delectable sauces.

Tambers has an extensive American menu for those of you not up to trying Indian food. The menu features all different types of subs, sandwiches, burgers, salads and countless other American favorites.  I highly recommend the gyro either with chicken or lamb.  A perfectly warm pita with thick strips of juicy meat topped with a creamy tzatziki sauce and a combination of tomato and red onion.  The meatball sub and cheesesteak were both enormous and looked unbelievable.

Whatever you are in the mood for is sure to be delicious.  Be adventurous and try something different, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Until next time.  I wish you GoodEats!
