baltimore disappointments

caroline | Oct 5, 200110:38 AM     5

Okay everyone here is a run down of the places i have tried so far. Also my preferences lean towards ethnic places with vegetarian options.
Thairish- lame lame excuse for thai food also last time i went there it reaked so badly of old oil that i had to leave.
Holy Fijoles- generic, glorified taco bell, over priced
Nacho Mama's- possibly the worst meal i have eaten, i don't even what to get into it
Frisco Burritos- yuck
Zodiac- i like the concept but yuck
Tapas Teatro- mediocre, how hard is it to mess up paella
Niwana- i have been there on several occasions and have tried many different menu options, left every time fifteen dollars poorer and unsatisfied
Al Pacino's- uninspired middle eastern, bad greasy falafel, curly fries?
Those are just a few, although i do feel compelled to mention that i have been pleasently suprised by the Korean places on 20th.
Can i take a moment to stay that Eddie's market on St. Paul is the worst, the prices are highway robbery and the selection is pitiful.
Can someone please tell me if my reaction is normal or is it just that i moved here from new york?
