Megan Ryan knows the tacos in her part of town. Over the past four months she has eaten an estimated 80 of them from about 20 different Baltimore eateries, most near her Fells Point home. She has discovered that a taco labeled "meat" can have one of a dozen different fillings, everything from steamed flank steak to "lengua," better known as tongue, a favorite offering of the taco truck that sets up shop on South Broadway near Bank Street. She has decided that the tilapia cooked with cloves from Arcos Restaurant is a hit. But the orange roughy topped with orange marmalade from Annabel Lee Tavern is a mess.

October is a gorgeous month in Maryland - prime time to do a little grilling and dine alfresco. At Bushmill Tavern in Abingdon, chef Mark Littleton regularly grills burgers and steaks, but occasionally he also likes to add fish to the mix.  Littleton, who gained an enthusiastic following during his years cooking in Baltimore restaurants, including Annabel Lee Tavern and Adam's Eve Gastropub, says autumn is the perfect time to whip up crunchy, flavorful...

Item: Taco Bell Home Originals dinner kitsWhat you get: 5 to 6 servingsCost: About $4Preparation time: 10 to 12 minutes in the microwave, 20 to 22 minutes conventional ovenReview: Though I'm not sure everyone wants to duplicate the fast-food taste of Taco Bell at home, these dinner kits earn high marks for convenience. We tried the Soft Taco Dinner and the Ultimate Bean Burrito kit. All of the nonperishable ingredients -- including flour tortillas and, in the case of the burrito kit, refried beans, cheese sauce and salsa -- came in the kit. This is not authentic Mexican food with real heat, but it's still satisfying.

Fells Point's new Mexican spot, Papi's Taco Joint, feels like the right restaurant in the right place at the right time. Judging by the crowds, the neighborhood agrees. Papi's opened in March in the Aliceanna spot formerly occupied by Bradley's of Fells Point (otherwise known as "the bar that was on Bar Rescue"). Papi's owners Carrie Podles and Charlie Gjerde, the pair behind the restaurant's successful neighbor Alexander's Tavern, overhauled the kitchen, bathrooms and decor, creating a fun space that feels Mexican-themed but not obnoxiously so. Scene & Decor When we arrived, just after 6 on a Thursday evening, Papi's was packed with a lively happy-hour crowd, with diners crowding sidewalk tables and occupying every barstool.

Inexpensive, family-owned and tiny, Nino Taco restaurant on Liberty Road in Randallstown had built up a strong following in its 26 years. Now the restaurant has moved about five miles, to a larger location in a new shopping center off Owings Mills Boulevard. Seating has increased from 22 to 42, but that's not enough to keep lines from occasionally snaking out the door. Poor:]

It's is hard to pin down what is great about a great taco. Is it the succulent, smoky carne asada? The tender, charred handmade tortilla? The sweet, ripe, spicy brightness of pico de gallo? More likely it's the way all those things come together. You can find such taco greatness at restaurants, corner taquerias and taco trucks with cult followings. But the best tacos in the world might come out of your own kitchen. Imagine a warm corn tortilla filled with thinly sliced, pan-seared duck breast, tomatillo sauce and a cherry-chile compote.

Tortilleria Sinaloa is a tiny storefront in Fells Point with no tables but eight stools at two counters. That doesn't deter tourists, natives and neighbors from testing their Spanish on the barely bi-lingual but friendly staff while trying to order from the compact menu. And nothing makes me feel more comfortable in a first time visit to a little street joint than having a neat young woman in constant motion wiping counters, stools, equipment and anything else that might need wiping.

The very first customer to walk into Nino Taco left in a huff after his order for a sausage and egg sandwich was nixed.That was 17 years and about 250,000 tacos ago, long before the restaurant lovingly described as a "hole" by owner Nino Blitz became a landmark in Randallstown and a spicy foothold in otherwise bland suburbia.Blitz says she has served an estimated 10,000 loyal customers, who have included former Orioles slugger Eddie Murray, his brother Charles, local television reporters and attorneys who periodically step through the squeaky screen door, open seven days a week in the 9000 block of Liberty Road.

The sign says "Big Ass Margaritas" … sold or shall I continue? Work up a thirst while I give you the drink details on the newly opened Papi's Taco Joint in Fells Point. Clearly, they already know their audience well - especially on Fridays (and only on Fridays), when you can order 11 delicious varieties of the 20-ounce Dos Manos Margarita all day - and all night - for a superb price. As the name implies en Espanol, you're going to need two hands to guzzle one of these puppies.

It's a snowy night.  You have a few drinks, play some video games and then it hits you -- an overwhelming desire for a taco.  That's what apparently happened to one Baltimorean last night who posted on Craigslist under the title "DRIVER WITH 4 WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE NEEDED FOR EMERGENCY TACO BELL RUN. " The poster said his or her vehicle, a "little hybrid douchemobile," wasn't up for the two-mile round trip to Taco Bell through the snow. ...

With about 10 jalapenos already in the fridge and a small basket of fresh tomatillos coming in the new weekly pickup from Cockeysville's Moon Valley Farm, I knew I had some sort of Tex-Mex meal in my future. But I'd never cooked with tomatillos before and wasn't quite sure what to do with them. I searched the cookbooks on my shelf and in "Just Tacos: 100 Delicious Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner," by Shelley Wiseman (Taunton Press, 2011) found a recipe for tacos with chopped fish and tomatillo "salad.

For last year's 20th anniversary season at Camden Yards, the Orioles and its concessionaire, Delaware North Companies Sportservice, brought in local favorites Gino's Burgers and Chicken and Stuggy's to the yard along with Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant , a year-round restaurant located in the stadium's warehouse, and the Roof Top Deck in centerfield, an instant fan favorite. And then the Orioles did what they did. This year is more about tweaking, upgrading and responding to requests from fans — including, the Orioles acknowledge, vegetarians who were still making do with french fries and pizza.

Improving our eating habits just isn't that easy.The pressure is on to get the job done, what with the relationship between food, overweight and most chronic diseases. And yet . . .Our lives are so busy, there's so much to do.A recent study by the American Dietetic Association showed that people think healthy eating is really important, but weren't doing all they could for three very important reasons. They thought eating well was too complicated, took too much time, and required them to give up their favorite foods.

It doesn't produce the spiciest Mexican food you'll find in Baltimore or the most inventive. But, El Salto Restaurant of Brooklyn Park turns out good, solid dishes that were easy on the wallet and left me quite satisfied. Situated on a well-traveled stretch of Ritchie Highway, El Salto occupies a former fast-food restaurant. Inside, the decor includes the requisite sombrero and oversized Mexican beer bottles, as well as a nifty painting of a primitive desert scene, complete with a hawk grabbing a snake.

Graham, 42, of Columbia, remains in critical condition at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center after he was shot multiple times. Just after midnight, Graham and another employee had walked outside of the fast-food chain restaurant on the 7100 block of Minstrel Way to confront a suspicious person when police say two masked men appeared near a trash bin. One fired at Graham, who was struck several times in the torso.
