I need a challah and soon. and given my constraints, i don't even need it to be the best in the city.

For the South Bay Folks!! Just called over to the Bagel Factory in Torrance. They have the Round Ones for New Years. Going to get one for the Break Fast tomorrow.. Thanks for the tip. BTW they have the Best Bagels in the South Bay IMO

Baltimore: Looking for the Grit and Soul of the City

I went to Faidleys at Noon this past Monday with my son. Why do they microwave the crab cakes. Actually they were not good, I did like the coddie though.. And to the Market. I love Markets, but I didnt see much that was interesting or woth trying. What did I miss..
PS. Trincherra was good BUT.. Jakes reallly stood out to us (they could be Ambassadors to your city )

Pit Beef near Timonium/Lutherville?

I went with my son the other day. Go to the BBQ smoker and I let them know that I found them on the Internet and Im from Los Angeles ( wing and rib sample was given )
Two rare beefs, great sandwich!! I liked the Tiger Sauce and the Onions best. We were given a free soda or chips as its our first time there. They are so nice, that gal at the register said take a Snickers they are free?? Such a cool family, I was served by Jakes Brother ( forgot his name ) big dude :)

Now on to the beef. Its smoked top round and tasty. I see the love. I would only change the roll to a more crunchy type of bread ( I like hard rolls on most sandwiches )
Had a Snowball by the blue shack near the fwy entrance as well.

I wish I had a place like this at home...

Lobster is Cheap Again - SWEET!

Be there next week, any new updates. And are anyone fisherman. What would be a good landing to take a 1/2 day boat out for some local fishing. Cattle Boats are okay, just want my son to get the experience of a tangled line :)

Pit Beef near Timonium/Lutherville?

Staying in the Inner Harbor on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Is Jakes Far. We have a car and would like to see some sites. Where else would you recommend? Thanks

Best steak in Buenos Aires?

Glad you liked it krosfyah. Its really an overlooked place compared to the other touted spots. I like the old world charm, no tourists to speak of, good wine list and totally great food at very reasonable pricing.. Here is the write up that Layne Mosler had written in her blog that tipped me off to Parilla Pena in the first place:

Thanks katydyd13, we know of Stella Plaza as my son and I are always are treated to dinner by my Mom ( coupon in hand ) at Il Giardinello. I normally bring an extra bottle of wine to share with the owner Joe. We dont have that kind of Italian in Los Angeles.. Its really good in our book, albiet sometimes a wait ( we try to time well ) as to El Familiar, we have great Mexican food in Los Angeles and Colombia, my son would not be that interested. Thanks for the tip, I will look it over when we are there for Italian. I have Petes Diner written down.. Thanks for the tips...

Baltimore: Looking for the Grit and Soul of the City

as an aside, for someone whom traveled to GUA for 15 years. I love the Pollo Campero in Zone 10. The locations in the USA have no game compared to them..

Help a poor Los Angeles hound visiting Baltimore and DC

Hey Mr. Taster, nice to hear the tales of a Los Angeles Hound in Baltimore. Did you have the Pit Beef. I know your love of BBQ so it was a natural. Im going in August with mini Foodandwine and we are looking to tour the city both with our eyes, ears and stomachs :) Thanks for the report.

Food Lover's Guide to Baltimore

any one know the approx cost of a crabcake at Faidleys in the Market? Thanks and whats the deal with the little fish cakes on saltines?

Baltimore: Looking for the Grit and Soul of the City

hi kukubura ( like your blog.. )I will be in your city in August with my son and this talk about Royal Farms Fried Chicken got me thinking. So I used the power of Google:

http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/top-lis...

I assume is like a Wawa in Jersey and their followers of hoagies. In any event. I do live in California and I would point people to In and Out.. Its actually good. Is it great thats up to you to compare. But, I am seeking spots for food in Baltimore and en route to Toms River once we depart. We will be staying in the Inner Harbor at the Hyatt, going to Camden Yards for a Ball game and not much yet planned. I grew up in NYC, so I thought a morning walk to Lexington Market for some breakfast may be in order and would like some hounish finds for a Lunch, Dinner and snacks when we are in your city. My son is 15 and a foodie as well. Thanks to all in advance..

Izakaya Bincho: A Pictorial Essay

J.L. Great photos, I have been meaning to go to this spot. Just curious, what was the approx cost of the meal that was in the photos and how many people ate that food? Some answers here http://izakayabincho.com/menu.html But was curious to know what you experienced..
Thanks in advance.

recs for Early Lunch between Gardena and Brentwood

I second the food at I Naba great Tempua.. Slow at lunch except for the Japanese Auto Bosses and been to eat italian and enjoyed it. Not mind blowing, but good. In these cases I always like the Tin Roof in Manhattan Beach..

Wow, Jakes looks good. I will be in the Inner Harbor in Mid August. I like those kind of places, nothing like it in Los Angeles..

Hi MGZ, Point Lobster was a good find ( thanks to all on this board ) we even found Ralphs Ices and Stewarts Root Beer last time a few blocks away.. I grew up in Staten Island and Ralphs was close to my High School ( Port Richmond ) Still love that place.. My son liked Johns Water Ice in Philly ( I digress ) Stewarts was not what I recall from when I was a kid going up to the Catskill Mountains with my family ( the place enrout there was way cooler and they had these wood barrels that they would serve the root beer on tap, birch too ) Anyway. Looking forward to our trip as I try to expose my ithingy kid to the cool things of my childhood, will he even look out the window and enjoy??

Thanks Doc, I will be with my 15 y/o son in tow. He is a foodie as well.. any other spots that you or the board would like. We will be staying at the Hyatt Inner Harbor ( on points ) and going to a ball game at Camden Yards. We arrive on a Tuesday mid day and leave the following night ( driving to South Jersey exit 88 GSP ) so anything to add. Thanks in advance for the courtesy..

First time staying in Baltimore

Thanks dining with doc.. Lookg forward to our visit. If you had to where would you go for good seafood, shack type atmosphere? Will be driving to sout jersey after so have wheels. While in town, 2 lunches and 1 dinner with a 15 y/o foodie in tow..

Worthy Philly Cheese??

I have had my share when visiting Philly. Forget Pats and Genos.. There are so many other spots to go. I like Philly West on Westwood Blvd ( close to Santa Monica Blvd ) Kind of a dive bar feel. And the steakhere are good.. Tastecakes too.. Good fries as well if you like that..

Wicked Spoon Buffet Yea or Nea?

Hi there, went at 11:00 on a Friday. It was good, not great.. I think the time to go is when there is a line to get in. I say this as many of the dishes in the small servings did not get taken right away and they looked kind of tired.. Good value, but Im not going to return. Next??
