The BF took me and Wonton to Baltimore a few weeks ago. The original plan was to go to the aquarium, but by the time we were done eating our crabcakes at Obrycki’s, tickets were sold out! Not to worry, I spent the day kicking BF’s butt in arcade hoops at ESPN Zone and sipping coffee on the balcony at the waterfront Barnes & Noble. It was a fun date. We took Wonton on a long walk and he enjoyed all the attention he was getting everywhere we went. 

We decided on Obrycki’s for lunch because we heard they’re known for their authentic Maryland crabcakes. We thought they were ok. Kinda small and for $30 you get 2 crabcakes and 2 sides. I was a little turned off because I chomped down on a couple of those pesky shells that separate the meat. We also ordered the fried clambits and oysters for appetizers. The best part of the meal were the oysters for me. They were very fresh and jumbo sized. BF ordered a Obrycki’s house beer too. Pretty tasty.

My co-worker told me about this Taiwanese restaurant in Rockville. I took my mom there for lunch when she was visiting last month and we ordered 2 appetizers, the 3 entree & soup lunch special (about $20), and the shaved ice dessert. Needless to say we had a ton of leftovers. 

Oyster Omelette – the best thing we ordered. Standard street food in Taiwan. 

Stinky Tofu – also very good, but only for the brave.

Clam Soup – tasty if you like ginger

Spicy Tilapia – too salty, yuck.

Squid & Chinese Celery – simple and delicious.

Shaved Ice -my favorite dessert. I recommend getting red bean, grass jelly, and taro as toppings.
