|New Lotte in Catonsville|
Lotte is a new Asian market on Rte 40. Great produce. Great seafood. Wide aisle after wide aisle of food from America, Korea, South Asia, Latin America and around the world. I just loaded up the fridge with fun, and I'll post more next week.
|Wang mandu from Honey Pig|
The Honey Pig dumpling stand is a new extension of the barbecue chain. Steamed dumplings -- wang mandu in Korean -- stuffed with chicken, bulgogi, pork or other fillings. They're $2. They're the size of a softball. And they're delicious.
We got a chicken mandu just as Honey Pig sold out tonight. Shredded chicken cooked with . . . . Oh, dear. We ate with plastic spoons so quickly that I didn't take notes. It was a bright, rich flavor, and we will be going back for more.
Thanks for Kevin, who tipped us to the Honey Pig mandu.
(Update: Honey Pig Dumpking closed later in 2013. The Lotte remains open and wonderful. They installed a casual Korean restaurant where Honey Pig had sold dumplings and then fried chicken.)

NEAR: Lotte Catonsville is on Rte 40 just over the bridge into Baltimore County. It's on the left, and they renamed the shopping center as Lotte Plaza so it's easy to spot.
