The Tastes of Yesterday


I’m not sure what sparked today’s post. I think it has something to do with how much we in Columbia/HoCo love remembering and talking about local places that don’t exist anymore. I’ve always enjoyed following such conversations because they give me a glimpse into local history. It reminds me of long Sunday afternoon drives where my father would gesture out the window and say, authoritatively, “This is where the old road used to go.”

So, here goes. 

What was your favorite menu item at a local restaurant that no longer exists? Was it your go-to choice every time you went? Or was it a once-in-a-lifetime selection at a very fancy place for a celebratory meal? I’m looking for your “I’ll never forget” food experiences in Columbia/HoCo. The good ones, that is.

Here are a few of mine:

  • The Catfish Po’ Boy at The Second Chance Saloon
  • The Turkey Club at the Double T Diner in Ellicott City
  • The Blueberry Scones from Renata’s Tasty Bites 
  • The entire experience at The Melting Pot
Of course I’ve only been here since 1999, so, what do I know? I’m sure my readers with deeper roots in the area have some wonderful culinary memories to share. Don’t be shy.
