One of my friends lives out in White Marsh, sometimes when we meet for dinner, I need to venture out to her neck of the woods. For dinner one night, I was craving sushi while other friends wanted Chinese and someone suggested Chopstix which is right across the street from one of my other favorite places in Baltimore County, R&R Taqueria.
We started with appetizers, one of my friends ordered the Chicken and Corn Soup, which was equivalent to an egg drop soup. The soup came out warm which was perfect on the cold night we were having. My friend really loved the creaminess of the soup and the addition of the corn.
Another friend ordered Vegetable Egg Rolls as her starter. The egg rolls weren’t overly greasy and were filled with plenty of fresh shredded veggies.
For my starter, I went with the Hot and Sour Soup. Given that this item had a spicy chili next to it on the menu, I was expecting some heat. Unfortunately, this dish was not spicy at all, however it was still delicious. The broth was a little thick and the soup was filled with plenty of veggies.
For our meals, my friends decided to go with Chinese options. One of my friends ordered Steamed Shrimp with Garden Vegetables. This dish came with a side of brown sauce to toss the shrimp and veggies in. My friend said every component of the dish was incredibly fresh and she would order it again.
My other friend ordered Chicken and Stringbeans. This item had a hot pepper next to it on the menu, however it also wasn’t particularly spicy. The dish was really good, but there was nothing particular special about it. I’ve had this dish at plenty of other Asian restaurants.
