I don’t like to gamble but I do visit the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore occasionally to check out the bar and live music scene and grab a pizza after hours. I have noticed that when I’m there, it doesn’t matter the time or day there is always a crowd at Ruby 8 Noodles and Sushi. I got to thinking… if there is always a crowd the food has to be great so I decided to check it out for myself.

I went there with a friend on a Thursday after work. We were both starving and everything on the menu sounded so appealing that we decided to eat a small feast. The manager Lisa was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the items on the menu.  She helped us select the perfect combination of dishes to satisfy our taste buds.

Szechuan Shrimp with Peppers
Veggie Pad Thai Noodles
Stir Fried Green Beans with Chicken

That food looks so good, it makes me want to go back again and again and again!  First let me say that everything was fresh. The shrimp were huge and mixed with the peppers it’s a light dish with lots of flavor. The Veggie Pad Thai Noodles entree is perfect for those who don’t eat meat but want a hearty meal with lots of flavor.  The noodles were light and airy and the best noodles I’ve tasted in a long time. My favorite entree was the Stir Fried Green Beans with Chicken.  The chicken was tender and the green beans were crispy and fresh.   All dishes are the perfect portion for sharing.

As if we didn’t have enough goodness from Ruby 8 Noodles and Sushi…we decided to try the sushi.

Ruby 8 Noodles and Sushi is definitely the best place in Baltimore to eat sushi.  This sushi was amazing, the best I’ve ever tasted.  My favorite was the Horseshoe Roll (bottom right in photo) with softshell crab and avocado.  I think I ate the entire roll myself.

Ruby 8 Noodles and Sushi is opening a second location in McHenry Row on May 12!  For those of you who don’t want to deal with the casino crowd, McHenry Row will be a great alternative.
