Every neighborhood in Baltimore seems to have at least one reliable spot for good Chinese food. But with its central location at Charles and 25th streets, and its hard-to-miss yellow-and-red signs, Yum's Asian Bistro feels like it belongs to the city as a whole — not just Lower Charles Village. And that's lucky for the city, considering the kitchen's proficiency with Chinese-American favorites, decent service and downright glamorous interior. Yum's chef and owner, Jerry Chen, trained in Hong Kong and previously owned sit-down Chinese restaurants in Washington and Charles County.

N ot so long ago, Italian, Chinese and Greek food were considered delicacies. Now they're take-out (and even chain restaurant) fodder, and Baltimore's international dining offerings have expanded to every continent, save Antarctica. (Perhaps that's coming soon.) Still, it's easy to stick with the standards instead of being adventurous and sampling cuisine from other corners of the world. So, we've picked five restaurants that not only make food from less-familiar parts, but also do it really well.

Fourteen-year-old Rachel Szpara of Parkville is convinced deep in her heart that at least a few drops of Chinese or Korean blood run through her veins. Never mind that her name is proof of her Polish ancestry. Who cares if her light-brown hair, tightly bound into two braids, points to German forebears? Or that her smattering of freckles — not to mention her fanciful imagination — may be part of her Irish heritage? As she practiced her calligraphy Saturday at the Chinese New Year's Celebration at the William Paca House in Annapolis, Rachel, a freshman at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson, expounded on the theory of her Asian roots.

Someone once said that ballet and modern dance would merge when a contemporary dancer donned toe shoes and ballerinas went barefoot. Well, that did happen in an Alvin Ailey piece years ago, and it was evident again last week in the dance kickoff of “China:  The Art of a Nation,” at the Kennedy Center now through October. As I watched the National Ballet of China , I was reminded just how much classical ballet has changed since the company's last appearance here in 2005.

Craig Benjamin Jr. said that before enrolling in Howard County schools' Chinese Summer Learning Camp, he knew how to say "hello" in Mandarin. In fact, many kids know "ni hao" because it's part of the name of the popular children's television series, "Ni Hao, Kai-Lan. " But the rising fourth-grader now also knows how to count to 100, say his first name and denote each ocean — all in Chinese. He is among several dozen of the county's schoolchildren who have spent the summer immersed in the program that school officials hope will be the first step in offering a foreign language program in elementary schools.

Regarding the article crowing about the increase of Chinese students at Maryland Institute College of Art ("MICA enjoys an Eastern influx" May 25): Does this mean that MICA allowed in all talented and eligible American students and there were many spots left over? That in a country of 300-plus million there weren't enough Americans interested in a prestigious art institute? And no deserving citizen was turned away? Of course, it's probably like those hundreds of unwanted slots that will go to illegal immigrants under Maryland's Dream Act. Apparently college admission isn't competitive anymore and our own people have no problem getting a spot where they deserve.
