More on Nursery Road BP.

By Joe MacLeod | Posted 8/16/2006

Sometimes lunch is where you find it, so if you find yourself driving around down near the bottom of the Beltway--the 6 o’clock position if you will, down Linthicum way--and you’re in need of some rapid victual, before you stop and talk to the clown at the nearby murderers row of Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Hardee’s, and/or Kentucky Fried Chicken, nip into the BP gas station at the corner of Hammonds Ferry and Nursery roads and see if they have any "rice bowls": simple, substantial, moderately spicy assemblages of basmati rice, Pakistani-style seasonings, and nice chunks of well-turned white-meat chicken. The bowls are of limited availability, made in small batches by a nice woman named Kay who brings them to the station daily, and you can pop the bowl into the microwave right there for two minutes or eat ’em cold--they’re that tasty. And at $2.25 a serving, we can safely say we’ve paid more than twice as much for less than half as good, and we await news of Kay’s ambitions to open a small restaurant in the area.
