HowChow Releases 2012 Best of Howard County Restaurants

Blogger lists favorites restaurants as well as those he's been wanting to try.

HowChow has been on a roll lately. Back in August the local food blogger broke the news that Whole Foods had signed a lease in Columbia. Then in October his blog was named the Howard County Times' 2012 "Best Blog." 

Since 2008 the food blogger has annually been releasing a list of his favorite local restaurants and dishes.

This year in Ellicott City he named Shin Chon Garden as his favorite place for Korean food and listed Han Joong Kwan as one of his top five places to try (or try again), particularly for its hand-torn noodle soup.

In Columbia, the blogger chose Bon Fresco for sandwiches, Iron Bridge Wine Co. for tapas and wine, Maiwand Kabob for Afghan, Mango Grove for southern Indian cuisine, Royal Taj for its buffet and northern Indian food and Sushi Sono for, of course, their sushi.

In Elkridge he called out R&R Taqueria for Mexican.

He also gave a shout out to Aida Bistro for their Italian food and Victoria Gastro Pub for their burgers.
