The Baltimore Sun ran an article today about Mee Jun Low, a small cheap Chinese restaurant on Mulberry Street in downtown Baltimore many years ago.
I recall one time I was there with a friend. He asked the waitress if they had a cigarette machine. She said no but she would give him one of hers.
The 1978 edition of the Citizens Planning and Housing Association (CPHA) Bawlamer guide said:
“At the end of your “meal” in the garish den of Mee Jun’s, you’ll wonder why you bothered to try to find the location, climb the narrow stairs, attempt to decipher the faded menu, and figure out what you were really eating. Not for the faint at heart. Entrees $2.50-$6.75.”
