Lemon Ginger Cookie Milkshake at BMORE LICKS

Federal Hill’s BMORE LICKS ice cream menu has so many good looking options that it can be overwhelming. The last time I went I didn’t make up my mind until the last second, but I sure made a good choice in choosing the Lemon Ginger Cookie milkshake.

The BMORE LICKS Lemon Ginger Cookie hard ice cream is such a perfect blend of sour, sweet, and spicy with delicious bites of soft cookie in it. And, it’s amazing in a milkshake. After my first sip, I felt like breaking into a dance… I didn’t, but I thought about it.

Lamb Saag at Himalayan House 

Himalayan House is a great option for Indian and Nepalese food as it features a large menu with a lot of enticing options. As part of a recent takeout order, I got the Lamb Saag, along with chicken tikka masala, of course.

The Lamb Saag is cubes of boneless lamb in a spinach cream curry sauce. It was so good, so tender, and just right on top of Basmati rice. The chicken tikka masala was also good as always.

Spartan Omelette at Southside Diner 

Southside Diner in Locust Point has great breakfast food AND great Greek food so, instead of choosing between the two on my last visit, I got a plate that combines both.

I ordered the Spartan Omelette which has gyro meat and feta cheese in it. The lamb gyro meat was cooked just right inside of the tasty omelette and the feta took it to another level. So good!

Spinach White Pizza at Barfly’s 

On National Pizza Day last month, I was craving a pie so decided to hit Barfly’s on Fort Ave. in Riverside. Barfly’s has great fluffy (yet crispy) pan pizzas that go great with the restaurant’s large selection of beer and whiskey.

I ordered the Spinach White Pizza with spinach, fresh garlic, mushrooms, onion, and a blend of parmesan, feta, and mozzarella cheese (full disclosure: I held the mushrooms). This was a really tasty combo and a good alternative to red pizzas. (And, if mushrooms are your thing, I’m sure they go well on the pizza as well.)

Wings at Southside Burger Bar 

During the pandemic, Southside Burger Bar at Cross Street Market in Federal Hill added wings to its menu to boost carry-out sales. They are a great new option to go with a burger, hot dog, fries, or Natty Boh draft.

While there are a lot of different ways to jazz up wings (Southside Burger Bar has seven different options), sometimes you can’t beat classic buffalo. As someone who grew up working in a Buffalo-themed bar (in Maryland), I really approved.

The wings provided a great combo of juicy and crispy and the sauce was simple, but just right. Well done!
