Squire's Restaurant

Squire's Restaurant, 6723 Holabird Ave., 288-0081. At Squire's the food is good, the portions are big and the prices are low. For families on a budget or folks who want a tasty meal without a lot of hoopla, this is the place. Add to that homemade cannoli, perhaps the best I have had in a long time, and you have Squire's, a small wonder in Dundalk. The varied menu is mostly Italian fare, although there are several steaks, lots of subs and even a hot roast beef sandwich on it. $-inexpensive (Last visited 9/90.) Bangkok Oriental, 8043-F Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, 766-0973. No, Bangkok Oriental is not the most authentic Thai restaurant around. Its look, menu and presentation have been Westernized, but in a positive way -- that is, not watered down, but "continentalized." Scallops with Thai herbs, oyster mushrooms in sherry, classic tom yum and tom kha soups, seafood stew, and coconut-sauced pa-naeng beef were a lovely melding of East and West. $$moderate. (Last visited 9/90.)

Lynn Williams Orchard Market Cafe, 8815 Orchard Tree Lane, Towson, 339-770. You'll need directions to find the Orchard Market, which serves excellent Persian food. It's down a narrow drive immediately east of The Orchard Inn Restaurant at 1528 E. Joppa Road. Go. Physically, the restaurant is simple. They don't have a liquor license. If you want to drink wine or beer, take some with you. Prices are low. Pay in cash. We liked everything: hummus, a wonderful peasant soup, beef kebobs, lamb in tomato sauce, garlic eggplant and chicken, and ices. $$moderate. (Last visited 8/90.)
