Baltimore: Review of Island Quizine

Liberty Road has its fill of restaurants but legitimate ethnic restaurants are not as easy to come by. So you might want to slow your car down as you approach the 8000 block of Liberty Road—8128 is where you will find a little taste of island cooking at Island Quizine.
