DINING OUT

June 15, 1991|By MARY MAUSHARD | MARY MAUSHARD,The Evening Sun Scarlett Cove Cafe, Scarlett Place, 200 S. President St., 783-8760. Love Tio Pepe? You'll probably love Scarlett Cove, too; after all, former Tio's chef Angel Sanz is in the kitchen. If you're not a Tio Pepe fan, you'll probably like Scarlett Cove even better. The garlic shrimp and black bean soup are just as terrific, and there's no noise, no wait, no elitist attitude. And there's a waterfront view. You'll pay a lot, but you won't be displeased with the food, which is Continental as well as Spanish. $$$expensive. (Last visited 5/91.) LYNN WILLIAMSThe Sun Akbar, 3541 Brenbrook and Liberty roads, 655-1600. The Akba in Randallstown, which has the same menu as the Akbar on Charles Street, is on the south side of Liberty Road, two miles outside the Beltway, in a cement-block building that houses two visible tandoor ovens. Recommended: large apple-sized samosas filled with spiced potatoes and peas, an interesting vegetarian thali, and seekh kebab -- not the usual kebabs, but long fingers of spiced minced lamb, accompanied by a sizzling mass of onions. $$moderate.

Bangkok Oriental, 8043 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena 766-0973. Located inauspiciously in a strip shopping center behind a Denny's, the Bangkok Oriental is a soothing restaurant, with a pretty decor, nice people and richly flavored food. I liked the place and the people who run it. I also liked what I ate, though a newcomer to Thai food. Those whose tastes run largely to Chinese when it comes to Asian food will get a surprising -- and delicious -- sampling of new tastes. We found the wild mushrooms, flavored with sherry, a wonderful beginning and enjoyed the traditional baked shrimp, which was actually a bit bland without the accompanying fish sauce. $$moderate.
