If you need a larger meal, they have one or two hot plates with combos in the bakery, or you can go next door (no sign!) to get full meals which we will try soon. One new item they have in the bakery is a delicious mix of fresh shrimp, peppers and onions with garlic sauce on a “plate” of fried plantains. The sauce is light and delicious and the plate is filling and crunchy.
Bollywood (as we know Bombay or Mumbai) is known for both its movie industry and wide variety of food ranging from Pav-Bhaji and Vada-Pav to Pani-puri and Bhel. Food and Movies- both are prime source of entertainment for any Indian and that’s the reason Bollywood truly represents India.
Dodging drunks coming in and out of Stool Pigeons, I decided to stop in on this small place. I did not see one person. The sign on the outside promised Caribbean (Jamaican) food. From the time I opened the door, I could smell nothing but the flavors from the island, the jerks, curries, and many other island favorites.
I have a feeling the pepper soup here started my love affair with insanely spicy food. I ate here in December on my way from the East Coast to London. This ended up being a random restaurant recommended to me by a Hatian friend, who knew I had a bad experience with Carribbean food in Miami (a future 1-star review to come).
Every time my Mom has visited us here, she has been searching for a good Asian market to buy food from and I think we finally found one! It is a 50 minute drive from Lake Norman but we were able to stock up on lots of frozen goods as well as satisfy our tapioca milk tea craving in the process. There is also a bakery there with egg tarts , sweet breads, and sesame balls. The market is clean as well and is in a relatively clean plaza area. There is also a butcher and restaurant area where they can…
The food is amazing. I have tried most of the menu (I kid you not), and there’s not one thing I don’t like - of course I have my favorites (chana chat, lamb momos, chicken tikki masala, chicken korma, saag paneer, paneer kulcha…I know…too much).
Godiva who!? My mom used to take me to Albert Kirchmayr since I was a baby, waaaay back when the store was still located on Charles Street near Roland Park. It’s since moved to Timonium, but the quality has not changed one bit.
I’ve been meaning to check out Lith Hall’s Save Your Soul dance party ever since I moved to Baltimore nearly a year ago but I only finally got around to it this past week. Lord am I glad I did! Great 50s/60s dance music, deadly $2 honey liquor shots, awesome dancing, plus a John Waters sighting, all for a mere $5! It was hands-down the best dance party I’ve been to in Baltimore so far.
Nova’s produces European crusty bread with a soft inside. Bakers blend a
grains, seeds and herbs into traditional recipes to create breads with the unique and unforgettable flavors of old Europe.
When you first get there, the enterance is to the side where you might see some shopping carts. It’s a bit awkward and a little more awkward once you get in because you don’t know what to do. LOL! Half of it is a shop and the other half is the restaurant. But you’ll be greeted with smiling faces and they’ll ask if you’re dining and sit you down. Once you’ve got a seat, it’s smooth from there on.
Absolute gem! I’ve yet to visit under the auspices of anything beyond lunch specials, but I really dig Swahili Village. I’m all about messing with my taste buds and giving them a challenge, and SV certainly delivers.
It was quite an experience. My friends and I had bought a Groupon to this place a few months ago but we never found the time until last night. As I called the restaurant to make reservations, we found out that we couldn’t sit together if we wanted to use our Groupons. When we arrived, our server sat us at adjoining tables so we could both use our Groupon!
A friend recommended we try the malasadas here, and they are ridiculously good! They are only $0.80 each.
We stopped by the Lemongrass Cafe for a Burmese pop-up dinner. I am Burmese by culture and I have to admit that the food was quite authentic.
The first Tamashiro Market was opened on Kamehameha Ave. in Hilo, Hawaii on May 1, 1941 by immigrants Chogen and Yoshiko Tamashiro.
This tiny place in Chinatown is the place for Look Funn. They have rolls with Char Siu or Shrimp.
Cafe Shambala is a family run restaurant where you will find a very homely environment with traditional Tibetan settings. We assure you the very best test of Tibet locally, and make your dinning experience a memorable.
I must admit I was skeptical of this place at first, but having driven by so many times the catchy name stuck in my head. So tonight when I was craving Indian I realized I hadn’t eaten a thing all day. I knew I had less than an hour to grab something and get to class, took a peek at a few fellow yelper reviews, and without a look back pointed my mustang toward Curry in a Hurry.
Frida Bistro is named after Frida Kahlo, a passionate Mexican artist who expressed herself by painting her life. Her passion for art and unique style made her one of the pre-eminent luminaries of modern Mexican art in the 20th century.
first found out about this place through a co-worker, and have been there a few times with different people since then. This whole place was decorated with a British theme, tiny wooden cabin with British stuff hanging all over the place. My only complain about the décor is that they have an Ireland flag, a Scotland flag, and a Wales flag, but no England flag, just a UK flag… It could just be a British thing?
