Tucked between Dave's Natural Market and Produce Galore in Wilde Lake Village Center, Hunan Family Chinese restaurant serves standard and specialized Chinese fare. "We like being in Columbia," owner Zhi Chen says. "There are a lot of people here who love to eat good Chinese food." While looking for a Chinese restaurant to buy just over two years ago, Chen says he fell in love with "Columbia's prettiness." He particularly likes being in Wilde Lake Village Center. "It's really the center of town," he says.

Word is out, on the blogs and the food sites, about Hunan Taste. It's been said to be the restaurant that adventurous eaters, especially the long-suffering seekers of authentic Chinese food, have been waiting for. I think it's that and more, a restaurant capable of pleasing every diner, from the most conventional to the most daring. The formula here is so simple that you wonder why other Asian restaurants haven't thought of it: Make every menu item available to everyone, and let the diner decide.

Nope, it's not a branch of some Chinese restaurant located in another city. Eighteen years ago, owner H.C. Ting says, he was misinformed by a real-estate agent as to the exact location of the space he and his wife, Scarlett Chou, were buying. By the time they found out it was actually in Pasadena, they had ordered signs and menus and it was too late to change the name. Besides, he says, Hunan Annapolis sounds more elegant than Hunan Pasadena, and that's how he likes to think of his restaurant.

What's a suburban shopping center without a Chinese restaurant? Hunan Legend, which has been dispensing egg rolls, chicken lo mein and other tried-and-true dishes from a Howard County village center for a dozen years, is a perfect example of the breed. The restaurant is spacious and brightly lit inside, with white tablecloths on large round tables perfect for sharing food. The unbelievably lengthy menu offers mostly Hunan and Szechwan dishes, and touches down briefly in Thailand with a version of pad Thai.

The Hunan Pagoda was like a long lost friend: It was a little hard to find, and then did not quite live up to our memories and expectations.Since our last culinary meeting, Route 100 has sliced through the neighborhood, diverting traffic (and potential customers) from the stretch of Dorsey Road in Hanover the restaurant occupies.And the little restaurant has gotten smaller -- giving up a section of a dining room that rarely seemed crowded to its next-door neighbor in the shopping strip, an Italian eatery.

The nearly weeklong closing of an Ellicott City supermarket for health code violations recently is not the norm in Howard County. But local health officials plan to become more aggressive against chronic but less egregious offenders, they said. First to feel the heat could be Hunan Manor, a popular east Columbia restaurant that has a two-year history of repeated problems during inspections -- from the presence of roaches and mice to improperly handled and stored food.

BEIJING -- An explosion Monday in a county seat in southeastern China killed at least eight people and injured more than 60, according to local officials. The cause of the blast has not been determined, officials said, but a local journalist said there was evidence that it was intentional, and one doctor said victims had nails in their wounds. No motive nor suspect was announced. The explosion was the second this month in Hunan province, the site of recent worker and farmer protests over corruption, unpaid wages and taxes.

CHANGSHA, CHINA I had thought of myself as a daring, resilient traveler, but this would be a test. As one of 27 volunteers with the WorldTeach China program, I was to spend a year teaching English to middle school students in China's Hunan Province, 800 miles southwest of Beijing. I was 24 years old, two years removed from college, and itching to experience daily life in a foreign land. WorldTeach directs programs around the globe and China was not necessarily my first pick, but as a Korean adoptee, I have long been drawn to the idea of going to Asia.

It may be hard to find Hunan Wok, but it offers some decent rewards for those who do. The small Chinese eatery is tucked into a space at the back of the Atrium at Greenspring Shopping Center, just north of the city limits between Mount Washington and Pikesville. That it manages to stay in business in its out-of-the-way location confirms that the Wok knows how to satisfy. With a number of guests to feed, we ventured in the other night to order an astonishing amount of food. Hunan Wok has several tables, and a few modest lanterns and pictures as decoration.

The Chinese food at Hunan Manor has long been recognized as the best in Howard County. It wins that distinction in local reader polls. And in 1999, no less an authority than USA Today listed it as "one of the 10 greatest places to celebrate the Lunar New Year in the nation." Robert Foo, the restaurant's floor manager, isn't surprised at all the accolades the restaurant receives. "They really know how to cook good Chinese food," he said. The restaurant's master chef, Tak Wong, who is also one of the owners, is constantly learning about new dishes, Foo said.

XIANGYIN, China - After a worrisome increase in small leaks, citizen patrols have been stepped up along hundreds of miles of dikes that hem in a huge, swollen lake here in central China. Still, the mood around Dongting Lake remained calm yesterday, with officials and local residents expressing confidence that the network of protective dikes would hold through a peak in waters that has been predicted for today. "It doesn't seem so dangerous now," said Wang Renwei, 35, a rice farmer whose home and farm are vulnerable.
