Trolling: Fish Noodles, Samurai Roll, And The First Snowball of The Summer

I'm trying to start a "Trolling" series where people share three food items that they love.  If people take up the call, then I'll introduce them with a few sentences.  Then, I'll list the three items that they want to pimp -- like this:
Fish noodles at Grace Garden:  Firm noodles made of ground fish.  Sauced and flavored in a way that I love, but I could never make at home.  Fish noodles and pork belly make me always ready to eat at Grace Garden in Odenton
Samurai Roll at Sushi King.  A tempura shrimp, wrapped in a roll and topped with tuna, fish eggs and a chef's sauce.  It's an expensive treat, but it's all the crunch, fish and flavor that makes me love the unusual rolls at Sushi King in Columbia.  Always ask about their specials.  Try to reserve one of the two private rooms.
The first snowball of the summer:  Summer fills you with fresh vegetables so that your body won't mind a snowball or two.  Shaved ice, squirts of artificial flavor.  It's simple.  It's fun.  It's the way that summer should be -- check out Shaved Ice in Clarksville, the KyKy's trailer on Rte 103 in Ellicott City, or the Original Snowball Stand in Woodstock.  Or open your own.
Trolling on Tuesday is my attempt at a series where readers would share three things with other HowChow readers -- favorite restaurant dishes, food to buy, food experiences, etc.  Click here for all the Trolling posts.  Click here for the explanation and the rules.  Anyone can submit.

the snowball stand makes the best snowball I've ever eaten. Hands down. And I've been eating snowballs for a long long time.

Agreed on Woodstock. Can someone give me directions to KyKy's? I can never seem to locate it.

I've already been out to the snowball stand twice for my egg custard. YUM!!!

Unfortunately the snowball stand outside Kendall's doesn't seem to be open yet, or at least they weren't open when I tried to go there last Sunday after a nice walk up at Brighton Dam. Cuuuuuuuuuurse youuuuuuuuu, HowChow! *dramatic fistshake* ;)

Of course, later on I remembered that there's another ice cream place across from St. Louis Church, but I don't remember if they sell snowballs, and that was what I was really craving.

@Kam -- I had the same experience two weekend's ago. The folks at Kendall said they didn't know when it would open. Maybe Memorial Day.

As I remember, it is mostly staffed by girls who look like they're in high school. In my first visits, I thought it might be a fundraiser for a sports team. I bet that they don't open until the kids are available.
