Mojito update

Thanks again for sending your suggestions. After sampling five of the minty, sugary rum drinks in different spots around town, the search is almost over.

So far, I've been to Little Havana, Holy Frijoles, M&S Grill and Babalu Grill, where I had two different mojitos. I want to hit up one or two places in upper Fells Point in the next couple of days, and then I think I'll write the story.

I've had two good, two bad and one OK mojito so far. Anybody have some Fells Point ideas? Latin Palace, maybe?

Sam - you should go to the Whistling Oyster on Broadway in Fells Point. There is a new owner and they have great Sangria and Mojitos for $5 made with fresh sugar and mint. Delicious!!

Really? I was just there last night. I'd heard about the new owner a couple weeks ago. I think he's planning on opening the upstairs too.

Check out Red Maple in Mt. Vernon. Great Mojitos and White Sangria!

Mama's on the Half Shell in Canton. Excellent Mojito and excellent Orange Crush.


You already found the best one in town: Holy Frijoles. I could tell you the secret but you know the story. Or you could just watch carefully when they make em...

Try Regi's on Light St. They are the best!
