  1. I noticed while playing with google maps that there is a Nigerian restaurant listed as being just off of Cherry Ln. It is called "Truly Spicy", has a few google reviews all within the past couple of months, and no other online presence aside from a menu on doordash. The confusing part here is that the address listed seems to be in an apartment building (The Emerson at Cherry Lane), and street view is unhelpful. The menu is interesting, although with the door dash format and my unfamiliarity with some of the items, it is kind of a guessing game. Maybe the "make your own spaghetti" is Jollo
  2. I have not had a chance to get out much lately, but I have heard of two interesting developments: 1. Manila Mart was closed for remodeling last winter, and is now open again with an expanded space. I plan to stop by and take out a halo halo soon. 2. A new Vietnamese place has apparently bravely opened this summer at Contee and Rt 1, near Cold Stone/Sardi's on the corner with Shoppers Food, "Lulu's Gourmet Vietnamese Cuisine" . Their online menu lists banh mi including an "Op La" egg version, plus the usual pho, bun, bubble tea, and an odd waffle section that has a photo of a cla
  3. I have done some research, and they are not related. The owner of the Laurel Famous KnK previously owned Bano Kabob on Cherry Ln.
  4. I've been to the Kabob N Karahi that is on New Hampshire, any idea if this one is related? The goat karahi was really good at the other one.
  5. Just moved to south Laurel - I'm familiar with most of the Beltsville options, but have only sampled a few places around Laurel before (Pasta Plus, Curry Leaf, Sapphire). Definitely want to check out Amber Spice (used to live near Udupi Palace back in the day) and Thai at Laurel. Can anyone comment on whether any of the pho options are good or if it is better to drive down to Beltsville? I am also intrigued by Famous Kabob and Karahi. Presumably there is not much in the way of Chinese unless you want to drive down to College Park (or further), although I have had dim sum at Mai Dragon in Hano
  6. I believe this has now been replaced with a small taco shop, Taqueria El CosteƱo, still in the back of the Super Best.
  7. I have heard from some Baltimore folks that Chef Li is retiring and they are not renewing the lease. The last day open will be early next week (Nov 4 or 5).
  8. This is my reckoning of the dishes that we ordered, most of which were helpfully described by ktmoomau above: shaanxi cold stir noodles, thicker noodles in spicy oil and seasonings cold stir enoki, mild flavored heap of enoki chengdu bean jelly, sleeper hit of slippery gelatinous strips in a spicy sauce (with salty bean paste?) tendon and tripe in spicy sauce, I think there is a similar dish to this at Grace Garden called "triple treasure" spicy trotters, succulent and rich with heavy coating of szechuan peppers and spices pita in lamb soup, which is bits of bread so
  9. What was the name of the dish of chicken with noodles? I think I have everything else written down...
  10. Ok, right now my list is nelumbo +3 ericandblueboy +1 danielk +2 ktmoomau +1 Which is a total of 11. I plan to call and confirm the reservation tomorrow in the early afternoon, please let me know any changes or corrections by then.
  11. Reservation made for Sunday at 6 pm, 10-12 people, under "Nicky" (or possibly "Micky", neither of which is actually my name but works for this purpose). I will confirm with them on Sunday morning, so please let me know before then if anyone has a change of plans or headcount.
