Nam Kang is Baltimore’s Korean hideaway, tucked into its basement location where every dish bursts with flavor. The wood-panelled and brick-accented dining room creates a relaxed ambiance that welcomes groups for authentic Korean food. This late-night favorite is open till 4:00am, great for a spicy meal at the end of a night out. Each entree comes with Banchan, assorted side dishes for the table, and the slightly sinful and perfectly crispy Seafood Pancake.
We Love Their: Hot Pot, Seafood Pancake, Spicy Korean Soup
