With new Peruvian joints popping up just about every other week (or so it seems), the flavors of Latin and South America are all the rage. But just because they're trendy doesn't mean the cuisines of Latin countries are new to the Baltimore food scene. Tucked into an unremarkable strip mall in Woodlawn, Salsa Grill has been quietly and successfully cranking out quality Latin American food for more than two decades. Scene & Decor From the outside, Salsa Grill looks just like one more storefront in an average shopping center.

Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

I can see you asking, "Why do we care whether a restaurant is located in a strip mall?" For several reasons. First, there are hidden gems here. If you didn't know they were good, you might overlook them because of the location. Second, it gives me a chance to highlight some restaurants in the 'burbs that aren't chains. Third, you don't have to worry about parking. Here's my list, in alphabetical order: 1 Aida Bistro in Columbia: . Italian food, small plates and a wine bar. 2 Asean Bistro in Columbia.

The heated battle over a proposed south county shopping center has taken a new turn, as opponents have hired an environmental lawyer to try to block a Safeway supermarket and other stores planned for a wooded site in the quiet town of Deale. South Arundel Citizens for Responsible Development Inc., which calls itself SACReD and says it has about 300 members, has retained attorney Thomas A. Deming to press its view that the project violates Anne Arundel zoning law, a contention denied by the county.

A half-mile stretch of Montgomery Road has become a crossroads where old and new Ellicott City meet.On one side, there are old homes and large, green pastures left from farms. But on the other side, five traffic lanes away, there are growing subdivisions and the county's second-largest shopping center, Long Gate.While development has led to homes for thousands, two Montgomery Road residents who have lived there a combined 99 years want to leave. They say the roadside community they knew is gone forever.

A Safeway supermarket and strip mall was a step closer to reality after an independent engineer reported yesterday that Anne Arundel officials "properly reviewed" the proposed South County development and went "above and beyond" county code. The Safeway complex could receive county approval by the end of this week, according to government officials. But opponents said they might go to court if necessary to block the 77,000-square-foot project, which has divided residents in the waterfront community of Deale.

For openers, a hurricane will likely be unleashed on one neighborhood in Anne Arundel County, and then the disasters will spread from there. The storm will lash the area with heavy rain, whipping wind, floodwater and power outages, causing road closings and evacuations. The event will be a big mess as it unfolds on a computer map for the benefit of public officials wanting to know how local decisions - on such matters as zoning, building codes, transportation, perhaps even the color of rooftops - affect their community's ability to withstand repeated lashings of extreme weather.

It was a 90-degree spring morning in 2011, and I was struggling, my breath coming in gasps. I was on the last leg of a sprint triathlon, the run, and from across the way, I heard the unmistakable booming voice of Shawna. She was the personal trainer/cancer survivor/demon woman who, a full year before, had somehow convinced me that, at age 48, I should take up this wretched sport. "Catherine, watch your posture!" she shouted. How had I gotten myself here? I was willingly subjecting myself to this exercise in agony and humiliation, which was suddenly feeling a lot like junior high P.E. class.

Chandeliers were the first thing Joe Niermann designed. And it was five years before he sold one. Now the bejeweled iron and crystal silhouettes are his signature. "I don't really care for the crystals, one way or the other," said Niermann, though millions of them are stored in large paint buckets in the Millersville strip mall he converted into the Niermann Weeks company factory. "I want the design to be strong enough so that it doesn't need crystals. " But it is the crystals — from tiny, man-made beads imported from the Czech Republic to the fist-sized rock crystals found in nature — that identify Niermann's light fixtures, some as small as a wall sconce and others 6 feet tall and 6 feet across and weighing 300 pounds.

County Executive Janet S. Owens says she is troubled by state Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller's legislative attempt to block a 77,000-square-foot Safeway supermarket and strip mall in Deale. "I think the Senate president likes to pick fights with me," Owens told reporters yesterday. Not so, said Miller. "She's new to politics pretty much," he said. "You have to be able to divorce yourself from personalities and debate the issues." The back-and-forth between the two Democrats is the latest flare-up in their strained relations that Owens says dates to Miller's refusal to support her 1998 campaign for county executive.

On Snowden River Parkway in Columbia, two little strip malls about a block apart each boast an Indian restaurant. Akbar, which also has a location in Mount Vernon, holds the westernmost spot. The other, House of India, was new to me, either because I wasn't expecting a next-door Indian restaurant or I kept missing the first parking lot and pulled into the second one (Akbar's) by default. Both are approachable only from the westbound lane of the divided parkway. If you miss them (and it's not impossible to do when traffic is moving briskly)

I get a shiver of satisfaction bordering on smugness when I find a little restaurant that does one or two things well, or that offers an out-of-the-ordinary menu, or that dishes up low-cost comfort food. So I feel pleasantly snooty that I visited Hummus Corner before some of my foodie friends. True to its name, Hummus Corner occupies an end unit in a strip mall that includes pizza, Chinese and sub restaurants. Plenty of dining choices and all of them predictable offerings. And all of them serve a densely packed zone of apartment and condo complexes around Lakeside and Owings Mills boulevards.
