We know that Towson's a bit of a wasteland, but have you experienced Thai One On? Not everything's wonderful, but they do some serious cooking here: a great mix of Thai and Japanese.
You gotta try Drunken Noodles, made with wide Chow Fun noodles; their interesting ginger carrot dressing and wonderful (charred) beef and greens roll. They also have desserts with sweet black rice.
It's either in Allegheny or Pennsylvania Av.
