There are a few different ways to get your crab cake fix: in a wrap, served with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise; as a sandwich, served on a kaiser roll with lettuce and tomato; or as a single or double entree, served with fries and cole slaw, as well as your choice of cocktail or tarter sauce. The sandwich and entree give you the option of cooking your crab cake fried or broiled. All prices are market price.
Even before you dig a fork in, you can tell this is a real deal crab cake. Moist, but not saucy, and comprised of mostly broken pieces of crab, with a few larger lumps in the mix. All that crabby goodnes is bound together with a mixture of mayonnaise and bread, mixed together with some spices. The binder is kept to a minimum, allowing them to pack as much crab in the cake as possible. It's almost Maryland style, but not so heavy on the breading.
This crab cake is aweseome! The crab meat is nice and sweet, and the flavor is consistent throughout. The spicing is kept to a sane level, accentuating the crab meat without overpowering. Both the crab and the spice work really well together. While the breading is kept to a minimum, it adds more texture than anything else, although it does give a nice background flavor. The focus is kept on the crab, which is such a delight when the quality of the crab is this good.
