MILK & HONEY BISTRO 1777 Reisterstown Road. Hours: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays; 2 hours after sundown Saturday to 1:30 a.m. Sunday. (410) 486-4344. If vegetarian fast foods translate to you as paltry meals only a rabbit can appreciate, you haven't been to Milk & Honey.
There's no meat to be had here, but you won't miss it. This is a kosher vegetarian, dairy and fish place, serving up as hearty or as light a meal as suits you. Soups, sandwiches, salads, quiches, baked fish, pancakes, spaghetti, macaroni and cheese -- quite a variety. Most of the food is homemade, not particularly spicy, yet rich in flavor.
You'd be cheating yourself out of the best homemade bargain the bistro has to offer if you walk out without a hunk of hot noodle kugel ($1.75). A good 3 inches high, this is weighty stuff, practically a lunch in itself: Juicy raisins tucked among layer upon layer of tender noodles get a zing from a healthy dose of cinnamon. The moist kugel reheats incredibly well.
