Chinese Near Baltimore--Szchuan's Best

FredYC | Sep 4, 2001 11:47 PM

I was back in Baltimore for the weekend to attend a friend's wedding and had forgotten how hard it was to find Chinese food down there. Then I remembered our favorite haunt back in our college days--Szchuan's Best.

I would recommend this place if for some reason, you can't make it down to Sliver Springs or Columbia for Chinese food. They have a fairly large dim sum menu at this place, but the dim sum is far from fresh. There are however, 2 distinct standouts on the menu. They have a spicy braised cod dish that is pretty good even by New York standards. The dish comes bubbling in a spicy red sauce with bits of preserved vegetables scattered throughout. The cod however, is delicate and fragrant. The second dish that I would recommend is their sauteed bamboo piths. You have to ask them for this one and it might be a seasonal item. I remember the dish being $9.95 which isn't bad for bamboo piths. Finally, I noticed several Taiwanese food items that looked quite good but I did not get a chance to try them. The beef noodle soup being the most enticing out of the lot.

So for those of you in desperate need of a Chinese fix, I would recommend this place until you make your way down to Silver Springs. It's on Liberty Road between Baltimore and Reisterstown I believe.
