Potato Salad at Bon Fresco
At Bon Fresco, I go for the potato salad because it tastes like potatoes. Tender chunks of potato. Just enough creaminess and a touch of chopped vegetables. This isn't deli salad where the mayonnaise gets equal billing. This is a side dish that falls somewhere between homemade and a real restaurant, which makes it pair perfectly with Bon Fresco's sandwiches.
Most recently, I ate the spicy pork loin sandwich. Again, it's real slices of pork with the authenticity of a homemade roast, but then topped with a professional touch -- mildly-spicy sauce and slices of roasted zucchini. I'd never think to put squash on a sandwich, but it was delicious and unique.
If you haven't been there, you need to check out the sandwiches at Bon Fresco in Columbia. The breads makes the place, and it is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Howard County.
