Baltimore Pho

1114-1116 Hollins St., (410) 752-4746,, $$$

Baltimore Pho was one of Baltimore's first serious Vietnamese restaurants, and still boasts the broadest menu and most lovely dining room. Pho is first rate here, fragrant and brimming with tendon or meatballs. A whole fried fish yields sweet flesh, though picking between the tiny bones can take the patience of a saint; the impatient would do better with clay-pot preparations. Gracious service help make it a good reason to visit Hollins Square.

Immeasurable Chicken and Waffle

1700 W. Pratt St., (410) 483-8707,, $$

Opened by the three women who make up the gospel group Immeasurable, this modest storefront is fast becoming the west side soul food go-to. Predictably, the chicken and waffles are excellent, but don't overlook fried catfish or smothered pork chops. Sides include greens studded with bits of turkey, sugary candied yams, and light-as-air hush puppies. Weekends often offer live performances by the owners. No alcohol.

Sweet Tooth Dessert Shop

1111 Hollins St., (443) 708-5579, $

Sweet Tooth is the cherry on top of the Hollins Square resurgence. This dessert destination offers sweets of both the vegan and full-of-buttery goodness assortments. Both are scrumptious and come in ever-changing varieties. The vibe at Sweet Tooth is very laid back, and the spot has become something of a neighborhood hangout. So grab a cupcake, or whatever else is sitting in the case looking all delicious and fattening, and an excellent cup of coffee, and take a seat.
