Meatless in Maryland 2

I used to eat a lot of Korean food until I went meatless. Mark's was a short ride from College Park, MD, and Takoma had a college town feel to it as well on a smaller basis. Funky crowd and more funky surroundings made for interesting distractions. Food was terrific and staff accomodating as we... read more

A neighborhood institution. Interesting korean spin on diner food. Place is too cramped though. When it's cold and when the door opens, the front part of the place gets a frequent blast of cold. Nice dessert options. burgers are ho hum. wait staff is very friendly. great beer choices. food looks good on paper but doesn't deliver on potential.

This is an old favorite in Takoma Park. It is unassuming but the food is excellent. The problem is that it feels like a fast food restaurant -- it's a deli with small tables and hard chairs. No frills, and no comforts. Not a place to meet with friends or family. It's one of the best menus in a town... More

I've always enjoyed the Bulgogi and the Asparagus Pesto Penne, but recently I tried the Udon Soup and it was so delicious and satisfying. Friendly Service and Mark himself almost always stops by to say Hi. Price is right. A terrific place for a good meal any time. Casual atmosphere.

Lots of variety, lots of vegan or gluten free choices. Bustling neighborhood atmosphere. Friendly service. Good value.

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. From the outside I didn't think much but the food made me an immediate fan. We chose this place for a quick lunch and the food was awesome. This will definitely be my choice whenever I am in the area for lunch.

Mark's Kitchen is a small, perpetually busy, restaurant in the heart of Takoma Park. The foot is excellent, including well prepare vegetarian entrees, such as tofu cakes, with rice, green beans, and potatoes. The service is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant, which seats about 50, is rather informal. It is also filed with teas, jams, baked goods, chocolates, etc.,... More

Stopped there by accident, and how lucky I was! This is a great restaurant with all the usual diner food in addition to korean dishes. Plus plenty of choices for vegetarians/vegans. And on top of that very friendly staff. Will definitely go back if in the neighborhood.

This is not the cheapest but it is the best. They use quality ingredients and you can tell. The place looks as clean and bare as an operating room. I would often stop in for lunch after church. The staff are friendly. I like the variety. I am not You can't sure how often they change the menu but I... More
