Mo's Seafood

Tucked in a shopping center in Parkville, this restaurant and market, serves you mammoth quantities of food at fair rates. Their delicious seafood platters will feed you for a few days and they offer affordable daily specials, soups, salads, chicken, steak, pasta and desserts.

We headed here to celebrate my husband’s promotion and my induction in Kappa Delta Pi (International Honor Society in Education).

We both started off with a cup of soup ($2.99). I had the Cream of Crab soup: I never had a cream of crab soup that had this much crab in it- the pieces were huge! The flavor was average but the pieces of crab made up for the average flavor. My husband had the Maryland Crab Soup. He said it was very good but didn’t have large amounts of crab but overall flavor it was one of the better ones he has had.

For dinner we both had one of the specials. I had the Seafood Jumbo Trio, which was a Jumbo Lump Crab cake, surrounded by shrimp and scallops in a lemon-garlic-butter sauce and served with 2 sides. I got he tossed salad with Pepper Parmesan dressing and French fries. Their French fries are very different then normal fries. They have a what seemed to be a crispy coating on them- not breaded but some sort of coating that was put on it before it was fried- they were some of the best fries! The broiled crab cake was huge with large amounts of crab. It was flavored perfectly and wasn’t too dry or too moist. I did however find a few pieces of shell in it. There was about 8-10 of each of the shrimp and scallops. The sauce on it was overly rich and was a nice constancy (not too thick or runny). It was way too much food and I brought home about ½ my crab cake.

My husband got the steak and cake special. He had a filet and the jumbo lump crab cake. The filet was a nice size however once he got past the outside portion of the meat it was way undercooked for his liking (he brought it home to reheat and cook some- He didn’t feel like sending it back). He said it didn’t have much seasoning on it but it was still good (he did add salt to it). He got a baked potato and coleslaw with it. He too also had leftovers to bring home.

Both of our meals were around $28 and our entire bill with food, drinks, tip and taxes was $86 (they added tip to the check before we had to pay). We both agreed the food for the most part was perfect and we would go back again!!!

Cheezy's Pizza & Subs

1637 E Joppa Rd
Towson, MD 21286
410-337-4992
www.cheezyspizza.com

So I have driven past this big smiling tomato a bunch of times and at last we decided to give it a try! Oh boy am I glad we did! I have been searching for a good pizza place that would deliver to my house and at lat I think I have found my #1.

We started with a special that was large pizza with 2 toppings and a 2 litter of soda for $11.99. So we 2 of our favorite toppings which were pepperoni and mushroom. This is the best pizza I have had in a long time here in Baltimore (I have been searching for a place to take over from the small pizza joint I love in my hometown in PA where I grew up). The sauce is sweet but not overly sweet. The pizza is a NY style pizza with the bubbly crust and the rest thin. They advertise that they make their own dough, use a family homemade recipe for the sauce and only use Grande cheese.

We also tried a Philly Cheesesteak for $6.99. They advertise they are overstuffed and they are but its the perfect amount! They use real meat and not steak-um! They use fresh baked Italian rolls that are golden brown on the outside and moist on the inside. My husband says it was the best cheesesteak he has had since we moved to MD.

They also have plenty of appetizers (bread sticks, mozzarella sticks, fries, etc), salads, wings, wraps, desserts, calzones, stomboli, and gourmet pizzas.

We didn't have a menu but used their website. you can order through he website but we just called it in. When we got the food they gave us a menu and it is loaded with coupons. *I just looked and it says online ordering is TEMPORARILY unavailable.

I give this place 5 stars and will be ordering form their plenty of times!

Taste is closing...

I got an email newsletter today that Taste was closing. Here is what the email said:

"Taste has been in Belvedere Square for three and one half years. We have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people who have come to the restaurant and had a great experience. My staff and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve you. It is with mixed emotions that I share with you all, that Thursday, April 10, 2008 will be our last day open as Taste Restaurant.

We are selling the restaurant and look forward to seeing the new owner bring his own personality and flare to the restaurant. We wish him and his new staff well.

We hope that you will visit us on April 10th. We would like the opportunity to serve you one last time. The bar and lounge will be open at 5 p.m. We will have a very limited menu. Come to Taste before we close.

As for me, I'm going to tak a little time off and then I'll be gearing up to begin a new adventure. The plan is to move to Charleston, South Carolina. I think a wine and tapas bar is in my future. - P> Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. We could not have done it without you. My staff and I look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely, Chef Ann "

Is it crab time yet?

Well as the rain comes I am getting ready for spring to roll in and the summer to come… why? CRABS!
I started to think about some of my usually places to get crabs… and as I was thinking I realized the one place that popped in my mind I have only gotten crab cakes at: Conrad’s.

So I jumped on their website and noticed they have some nice specials for crabs:
Monday- Buy 1 dozen crabs get 1/2 dozen free
(sm males and sm/med females only)
Tuesday- $1 CRAB DAY!
(sm males, sm/med females only)
Wednesday- Free MD corn with crabs (2 ears per dozen crabs)

So I am ready to roll out the newspaper, crab the crackers and melted butter for a feast!
