Fantastic Mexican (in the suburbs)

I wrote this a while ago, but wanted to repost it to the list. We have gone back to Kiko's a couple of times for lunches and dinners, and the food is still excellent. However, they're tucked in dying strip mall and need some love and attention. Please visit them, because I want them to stay open so I can continue to get my fix of hibiscus tea and carne guisada. Enjoy:

In search of a breakfast place in the barren wastes surrounding Belair Road, blythefishy and I stumbled across Kiko's Mexican Restaurant. Located in the shopping center at the corner of Silver Spring Road and Belair Road, Kiko's is so good, I had to give it some props.


This is not that Don Pablo's shit. Kiko's has the good stuff. They have the burritos and tamales and all, done completely right. Blythefishy almost ate the guacamole bowl. Their Mexican coffee and pastries will knock your socks off.

I had the chorizo and eggs. The chorizo was formed by the hands of the minced meat god himself. It was a sausage was not to be taunted with pedestrian condiments like ketchup. It demanded a sacrifice of unborn poultry children. The refried beans were not to be scoffed at either.

And what's really awesome is the price. The prices are not unreasonable to begin with. Burritos for $4. Dinners for $8. But there is a bonus. For lunch, they kock 50% off. We got out for $14. Such affordability prompted Blythefishy's say "I feel like we stole something".

Go. Go now. It is imperative that you go and support quality ethnic food in this city. Don't fall for the lies of the Mexi-corporate chain's regime of awful. Viva la revolution!

new here!

I joined charmcity yesterday and realized this was on the userinfo so I also posted in there but!

I just moved back to Baltimore from Reno NV. I loooooove Sushi and I know of no sushi bars around here with REALLY good all you can eat sushi.

Suggestions? Places I shouldn't try? Gimme the scoop.

Mick O'Sheas Irish Pub

Has anyone eaten there before? What did you think? Is it loud? How about during the week? Do I ask too many questions?

I'm looking for a place to have a Meet-Up, and I'd prefer something like an Irish Pub, and that one looks promising. I suppose I could go there myself, but I'd like to get some other peoples thoughts on it before I do.

hey folks.

i have a friend coming to town for a day or so sometime soon, and she's a vegetarian...this is all well and good, but i'm stumped. i have no idea what kind of restaurants out there cater to folks with veggie diets...and i don't mean the "oh, just order a no-meat" sort of place, either. we'll probably be going to Fells the day she's here, and i'm hoping there's a restaurant 'round there that WILL cater to her diet specifics. i can deal with a veggie meal if need be, though i do prefer meat in my food...however, i'm more interested in catering to her needs as it's a need, rather than a choice, for her. any ideas?

worst case scenario, we'll head over to whole foods near President St, but i'd like to avoid going there if possible.

thanks in advance!

xposted a few places, sorry if you see this more than once.

What's up with Yabba Pot?

What's the deal with Yabba Pot? Are they back at the St. Paul St. location? I drove by there quickly and could have sworn I saw a Yabba Pot sign out of the corner of my eye... was I just seeing things? I thought they had pulled out of the St. Paul St. location completely.

anyone ever eaten at salt?

thanks for the indian carryout suggestions from a post i made months ago. i have found a new indian carryout - the himalaya house - it's fantastic!

might I suggest...

Going to the BMA. It's free and there's a really cool sculpture of a hippogriff up right now in this show: http://www.artbma.org/exhibitions/index.html

and may I also suggest eating here?


I had:
oyster stew (great even though the server forgot the "red pepper foam")
mashed chayote (like cheesy potatoes)
mashed acorn squash with cranberries (yum)
fennel and salmon salad (light and the only part of my meal that wasn't a starch)
yucca citrus salad (might make at home)

and also tried:
buffalo steak
a chicken tamale
chips and guac
wild rice salad
buffalo chili
tres leches (dessert)
mexican hot chocolate

all good, but the tres leches was a knockout!

Went here for dinner this evening. Very nice place. Plenty of food for the price. The young lass though hardly spoke a word of English, though I have to admit her English was better than 4 peoples spanish... It did take a while for us to get the check... I'd definately go again... Oh one thing it is take your own as they don't have a liquer license as yet... I'd definately go back...
