Continuing my quest to visit all the farms on the Maryland Ice Cream Trail, I traveled north of Baltimore The trail is an initiative of the Maryland Department of Agriculture to promote local family owned and operated dairy farms. There are four farms on the trail in the northeast, serving homemade ice cream with the high quality that I expect from places on the trail.
Maryland Ice Cream Trail – Eastern Shore
The Maryland Ice Cream Trail is an initiative of the Maryland Department of Agriculture to promote family owned and operated dairy farms in Maryland. This includes farms on Maryland's Eastern Shore. I drove over 100 miles for ice cream. But it was worth it.
Il Pizzico – Ristorante Italiano
For years a friend has been raving about an Italian restaurant in Rockville MD, saying it has become his go to place for date nights with his wife. Recently, I was at a nearby Marriott attending a convention. Being just a few miles away gave me the opportunity to dine at Il Pizzico. It is every bit as good as my friend said.
Masala Street Indian Eatery
I love Indian food and have it quite often. But I can't say that I have had Indian street food before. I was in Georgetown for an event and was looking for a place to eat after. When I saw Masala Street, I knew I had to try it. I'm glad I did, as the food is unique and delicious.
Lickity Split ice cream
This summer an ice cream food truck started appearing at the College Park Farmers Market. Featuring home made, small batch ice cream, Lickity Split has quickly become one of my favorite ice creams.
Skipjack’s Crab House
On a recent Friday evening I was in Baltimore for an event, but it got canceled because of a thunderstorm. Needing someplace to eat, I started searching. Eventually I found Skipjack's Restaurant and Sport's Bar in northern Baltimore. They have the best crab cakes I've ever had.
One of my favorite restaurants, Mandalay Restaurant had closed during COVID. But this past week, it reopened for business. For now, they just have take out. Except for Aug 13-14, when there were special lunch and dinner buffets. I went to the very first seating.
Mi Vida has been on my list of restaurants to try ever since the Mexican Ambassador said it was her favorite restaurant in Washington DC. Recently I was in the Waterfront area and took the opportunity to try the place. Mi Vida is as good as the ambassador said.
Miyako Japanese Steak & Seafood
I was in Frederick Maryland running errands and I needed to eat lunch. I happened across a first class Sushi restaurant: Miyako Japanese Steak & Seafood.
One of my favorite places to dine, Mandalay Restaurant, has a related eatery in Georgetown. I was in the area recently for a festival and made it a point to try it out. Bandoola Bowl lives up to their reputation.
