Contrary to what the name says, this place is not a hotel – it is a bar. And they make some decent bar food. I haven’t decided if the WTF Hotel logo is clever or lame; nevertheless it is everywhere. These guys also do live music overnight starting at 10pm – their website and chalkboard inside lists the bands for the month.
I went on a Tuesday for Charm City Trivia (we came in 4th – not to shabby…). They don’t seem to have trivia specials, but they do have a decent number of specials. I chose the Washington Hills Sav Blanc from the two $5 choices. It was fine – much sweeter than I like. I eventually switched to the same winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon.
It was taco night – so I went with tacos. I didn’t get the special ($2 per taco) – although it sounded great, it was a little more breakfasty than I was craving – chorizo and potato. I went with the pork belly tacos. Two white corn tortillas wrapped around a large chunk of slow braised pork belly sitting on top of a bed of lime marinated cabbage. They add a little sweetness with a house made mango bbq sauce and top the whole thing with some fried onions. It usually comes with fries, but I have that love hate relationship with fries – so I got the salad instead. Their house dressing is a slightly creamy citrus vinaigrette. It was tangy, but sweet and the salad was a winner – mixed greens with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots. I love it when a bar can make a decent salad.
