Vietnamese food is a particularly attractive combination of fresh ingredients and familiar Asian flavors. Add the current popularity of its steamy noodle soup, pho, and it's no wonder that right now, Vietnamese food is hot, hot, hot. Indochine, which opened last May in an unassuming storefront in a Midtown stretch of Charles Street, covers the Vietnamese bases, from simple appetizers like rolls and dumplings to traditionally flavored rice dishes....

Winter crops have been harvested, and the well-tended furrows and raised beds at the DeWees City Farms Garden in Govans are bursting with the promise of a summer bounty of dozens of varieties of vegetables, fruits and flowers. DeWees is one of seven community gardens where city residents can rent 10-by-5-foot plots; many have nurtured the same plots for decades.

You never know where you will discover an unexpected carryout pleasure. My most surprising recent find was Pasta Plus, which sits in a rather homely shopping plaza tucked in between the north- and southbound lanes of U.S. 1 in Laurel. It turns out that Pasta Plus is run by two brothers from northern Italy and has been in operation for years, selling homemade pasta, delicious pizza and other dishes at reasonable prices. The brothers have a full-fledged restaurant as well as a separate space devoted to us carryout patrons.

In the beginning, Cypriana was a simple sidewalk stand - an efficient chicken-grilling, falafel-scooping operation with devoted customers. After growing in popularity, Cypriana moved into a narrow space on East Baltimore Street, then expanded to a second shop in a food court a few blocks east. Now those two outlets are closed and Cypriana has moved into - dare I say? - an elegant space on the northwest corner of Baltimore and Calvert streets. Located in the lobby of the Sun Trust Building, the new Cypriana Cafe features light-colored wood and lovely tile decorations in Mediterranean shades of dark blue, pale yellow and aqua.

1992 Murphy-Goode Pinot Blanc, Alexander Valley ($14). This delicious, barrel-fermented white wine is made from the melon de Bourgogne grape, the same varietal that yields Muscadet. This wine is nothing like Muscadet, however. It's a ripe, yeasty, toasty wine with a fascinating mix of melon, pear and herb flavors. It outclasses most chardonnays in its price class and would be a delicious companion with salmon or swordfish. Keep an eye on Murphy-Goode. This winery is doing some brilliant work.

2002 Vignobles Boudinard "Grange des Rouquette" Marsanne-Viognier, Vin de Pays d'Oc ($11). This exquisite blend of two white Rhone Valley grapes is simply ablaze in fresh fruit -- melons, pear, peach, citrus -- and mineral flavors. It's a delicious commingling of the spiciness of viognier and the structure of marsanne. While this is a delicious and light-hearted blend, it also has more complexity than the typical summertime white. Ideally, serve this wine before Labor Day with grilled seafood or spicy fried chicken.

1995 BONNY DOON MUSCAT VIN DE GLACIERE ($16, 375 MILLILITERS)Looking for an elegant way to top off a small dinner party? You might want to serve a taste of this California dessert nectar made by Randall Grahm, the Master of the Icebox. Grahm uses a commercial freezer to simulate the freezing that creates the rare and delicious German eisweins (ice wines). It seems to work, and the cost is far more reasonable. The process also concentrates the delicious natural flavors of the muscat grape -- honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, pineapple, coconut and marzipan.

The Orioles have been lobbing some tasty pies. For the past two years, outfielder Adam Jones has been smashing shaving cream pies into teammates' faces to celebrate big wins. This year, the pie smashes have gotten a lot more fun thanks to a daily delivery from Baltimore's Dangerously Delicious Pies.  Notice catcher Caleb Joseph's sugary sweet grin in the photo the team posted to Instagram following last night's 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.   People with a faceful of shaving cream don't look quite so happy.

What a nice dinner that was at Bistro Blanc. We enjoyed beautiful and well-constructed appetizers, perfectly cooked entrees and scrumptious desserts. And we just plain enjoyed ourselves at this wine-focused Glenelg restaurant. When Bistro Blanc opened in 2008, it was promoted as a wine bar that also served food. It was meant to be a place where wine lovers would congregate, work their way through a well-considered wine collection and avail themselves of a high-tech, self-service wine-dispensing system.

Don't let it be forgot, At Toby's is a spot, For happy ever-laughter-ing, That is known as "Spamalot. " OK, that's spun outrageously from "Camelot" lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, but the current production of "Spamalot" at Toby's Dinner Theatre of Columbia tends to place one in the mood for a bit of irreverence. Monty Python's parody of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table - on a quest for the Holy Grail - was originally a 1975 movie, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," which became a musical with book and lyrics by Eric Idle, who also composed the music with John du Prez.

Cindy Mosier from Dowagiac, Mich., was searching for a recipe for making a cinnamon loaf similar to the one she enjoyed growing up that she said was made by a bakery in her hometown in the 1950s and '60s. She said it was baked in a loaf pan and was moist yet firm. When it was turned upside down after baking, it had a wonderful gooey caramel topping and swirls of cinnamon throughout the loaf. She said she has searched for a similar recipe but has not had any luck finding a really good one. Suzanne Boyle who lives and works in Belleville, Ill., and is the food editor at the Belleville News-Democrat saw Mosier's request and said, "I have never been to that bakery [but]

It's a rare feeling to love a bar as soon as you walk through the door. With its quiet charm, Beatnik, a new Station North bar, delivered it almost immediately on a recent Saturday night. Beatnik's precisely executed details, both small and significant, left a lasting impression. For a bar that opened in mid-July, it seemed confident, like its owners were fully committed to creating a cool, unpretentious hangout for Station North art types. But you don't need to be a regular at Club K or the Crown, both music venues close to Beatnik, to appreciate what's going on here.

Third in a three-part series. There's no denying that soft-shell crabs are a little weird. They're slimy and slippery when raw. Cooked in a sandwich, their spindly legs and grabby claws poke out from the slices of bread and make some people wonder, "Do you seriously think I'm going to eat that?" And although even some lifelong crab-loving Marylanders believe soft-shell crabs to be a different species than the well-known blue crab, they are in fact the same creature. Soft crabs are simply blue crabs that have recently molted, shedding their hard shells to reveal a paper-thin exoskeleton that hardens within hours.

1997 J. Lohr Monterey ``Riverstone'' Chardonnay ($10)Few California chardonnays in this price bracket show as much personality and intensity as this sterling example from Lohr. It's one of the best sources of value from the Golden State. Although there's plenty of body, it also offers a crisp, clean finish and delicious vanilla, lemon, apple and white pepper flavors. A natural to serve with salmon or ham.

This robust, smooth zinfandel does a pretty good imitation of a fine vintage port, minus the sweetness. It's packed with flavors of blueberry, chocolate, herbs and coffee. Its style is more reminiscent of a big-shouldered Sonoma County zinfandel than the typical Napa zin, but who's complaining? It's simply a delicious red.
