Faidley Seafood, Lexington Market – Baltimore, MD
Located at the tail end of what is essentially a flea market you will find one of the most unassuming gems the world has ever known. A crab cake so good it actually makes all of those fisherman who died on “Deadliest Catch” worth while.
But this cake doesn’t get buy on crutches like fillers and sauces and “angry” spices. Oh no. This cake is all crab. In fact, it’s so jam-packed full of fresh crab it’s almost hard to call it a cake. It’s more like a “wad,” but my guess is “crab wad” wouldn’t sell very well.
