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 he named eight favorite restaurants from around the county.
His list included R & R Taqueria in Jessup
The blogger also 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.
He also mentioned El Hidalgo in Elkridge for as a place he'd like to try for Mexican and Colombian.
