Each time Diana Zambidis visits Lotte Plaza in Ellicott City, she finds something new to experience, and it's not always the food. It could be listening to the Korean pop music blaring from the loudspeaker, or attempting to translate the specials - printed in Korean - in the store's weekly circular, or discovering exotic foods like salted fish intestines and squid jerky. "You have to get over the music," Zambidis, of Ellicott City, said with a laugh. "But the food is outstanding. ... It's very reasonable.

The Super Fresh store on York Road near the city-county line has closed, just one of several older and smaller stores within the chain to shut its doors recently. The store, at Gittings Avenue and York Road, was roughly half the size of typical new grocery stores. A spokesman for Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., parent company of the Super Fresh chain, did not return phone calls yesterday. "The store at Gittings and York was a good example of really being too small to fit the modern needs of the chain," said Jeff Metzger, publisher of Columbia-base Food World.

I took a noontime walk to find some evidence of the 10,000 people a newly published report said are now dwelling in Baltimore's inner downtown core. I asked myself, where do these people buy their Pop Tarts and Doritos? I don't think they call at the Lexington Market, a destination you might have to be a third-generation Baltimorean to appreciate. After all, many people would be suspicious of a place where you can get a cup of delicious coffee, hand the clerk a dollar and get change.

What it is -- A "pounder" bag of tortilla chips with whole grains. What we like about it --If we're snacking with abandon on Super Bowl Sunday, we might as well squeeze in something good -- especially if we're not apt to notice it. These chips provide 8 grams of whole grains per 1-ounce serving. (Government dietary guidelines recommend we get 48 grams each day.) The chips have no trans fat or saturated fat, and they're flavorful and sturdy enough to hold dip. What it costs --$3.49 Where to buy --Available at Mars, Super Fresh and Weis markets.

BAL HARBOUR, Fla. - After settling a 138-day contract dispute in Southern California, the newly named president of the United Food and Commercial Workers union says he's not looking for more fights with grocers. But union chief Joseph T. Hansen says the test will come soon enough, in Washington and Baltimore, where a contract covering 29,000 workers ends late this month; and in Chicago, where the UFCW has renewed talks with the Dominick's chain. "If Safeway comes to the table, talking like they did in California we'll have another strike," Hansen said, referring to the Washington-Baltimore talks with Safeway, Giant and Super Fresh supermarket chains.

How do you get from Saigon to Baltimore? For me, it was through sushi. Yes, sushi. I was born in Vietnam, an unlikely place for the career of a sushi chef to begin. When I was a small child, I moved to America and became interested in cooking. I watched my parents prepare all types of traditional Asian dishes and by the time I was 11, I was cooking rice and eggs. Yet while I loved cooking, I didn't think it was a career option. All I knew was that I had to make a living somehow. So I did whatever was necessary; I mean I have done everything.

Passions are running high at your local supermarket. On the one side are customers like Karen Sutton, 26, who shops at the Whole Foods downtown - but only about once every two weeks when she absolutely has to. The beautiful new store doesn't happen to have any self-scan lanes. "I would go to the grocery store more often if there was self-checkout," says the University of Maryland medical student. "My refrigerator is bare after 1 1/2 weeks, but it beats waiting in line." On the other side are customers like Mercy Rock, 46, who shops at Giant and Super Fresh, both of which have do-it-yourself lanes.
