Best Late-Night Dining

Nam Kang

2126 Maryland Ave., (410) 685-6237

Posted 9/21/2005

Lots of places serve food 24-7, but there arenít many places where you can enjoy a full-on culinary experience in the narrow hours between last call and sunrise. You can at Nam Kang, late-night beacon of Baltimoreís Lower Charles Village Koreatown. Of course, the robust, peppery flavors of Korean food arenít everyoneís idea of belly-fill after a night of drinking or before a heavy snooze, and Nam Kangís Pepto-pink basement walls and florescent lighting are low on after-hours ambiance. Regardless, stopping by Nam Kang late (itís open until 4 a.m.) is a bit like arriving home hungry and tired and finding your mom still awake, ready to cook you a hearty meal with all the trimmings before you turn in. The staff is friendly, the food is bountiful, complex, and never rote, and the late-night bustle is lively without being wearing. After all, if youíre at Nam Kang, youíre there to get fed, but good.
