I’ve been hearing a buzz about Dooby’s (802 N. Charles St) Noodle Bowls for some time now and this week I visited the Mt. Vernon, Baltimore restaurant on a mission to finally try one of the famous bowls.
I went there during the lunch rush hour and as expected it was pretty busy. Dooby’s is a coffee shop/restaurant with high-top tables in the main dining area and window and wall high-top seating. There is an upper-level dining area with standard, more formal tables. Menus are placed at the door and once you order at the counter, you take a number, have a seat and a staff member brings your food.
Dooby’s has a “build-a-bowl” style ordering system. First you pick the base (rice, noodle, salad or wrap) and then you pick the protein (chicken, steak, meatballs, salmon, veggie or tofu). I decided on the Korean BBQ Steak over Sir Fry Noodles.
I must say it was an excellent choice! The steak was seasoned well and thinly sliced and it was a very hearty portion, I had steak in every bite. There was plenty of noodles and broccoli in the bowl also, it was so large I almost didn’t finish it all.
My best friend ordered the Roasted Chicken Lettuce Wrap with Brown Rice and Sweet Soy Ginger Sauce . The Ginger Sauce was delicious, I kept sneaking pieces of her chicken and dipping it in the sauce… I think I even dipped my steak in it. The Lettuce Wrap was a perfect light lunch entree.
We also ordered a small appetizer to share.
The seafood dumplings were great! So much flavor in two bites. I could taste each seafood ingredient separately and they fit well together. I was mad I didn’t order my own serving.
If you are in the mood for a hearty filling meal, definitely order one of the noodle bowls. I have to try their freshly home-brewed coffee on my next visit.
