Baltimore, Maryland, affectionately known as Charm City, is most famous for football and Jumbo Lump crabcakes.
With a multitude of restaurants serving this delicacy, how do you choose the authentic and the best? My pick: Faidley's Seafood, at Lexington Market, Mt Vernon - believe all the reviews and try one!
Faidley's Jumbo Lump crabcakes are handmade with fresh Jumbo Lump Blue Crab meat. There are only two pieces of "Jumbo Lump" (the swimmer fin muscle) in each crab; it takes over 40 crabs to make a pound of this succulent delicacy! Each single serve of crabcake is about 6.5 ounces. Big chunks of crab meat and with very little of anything else, means you can enjoy the crab meat taste.
Open Monday through Saturday 9:30am-5:30pm, this family-run business has been serving its award-winning lump crab cakes since 1886! There are plenty of other seafood menu options, including soups, fried shrimp, raw oysters, steamed mussels, and fresh seafood for you to take home and prepare.
