Five Bites On Friday

Today's five bites come out of Howard County from the author of the blog HowChow. If you need dining recommendations in that area, HowChow is a great resource. Check out the blog's handy Google map of Howard County restaurants and markets. Now, on to the bites...

1. The "Pretty In Red" roll (crab and spicy tuna) at Sushi King (HowChow write-up)

2. Sopapias after a tapas dinner at Ranazul, pictured at right (HowChow's take)

3. The "French" coffee with condensed milk at An Loi Pho

4. The pumpkin appetizer, tender pumpkin dressed with yogurt and spiced, ground beef, at Maiwand Kabob (HowChow's take)

5. Fresh corn tortillas — less than $2 for 30 — made at Lily's Mexican Market
