Finally, I found a place that makes a delicious crabcake.
A delicious crabcake for me means:
- Not a ton of breading (most common problem)
- Not a ton of salt
I love salt. I crave salt. I carry salt packets in my purse just-in-case... However, for some reason, places make crabcakes with a ton of salt.
- You can taste that one of the ingredients is crab.
Beyond that, I'm flexible.
Other crabcakes I've tried here were at:
- Quality Seafood.
One of the worst crabcakes I've ever had. Way over-breaded. Quality Seafood has received rave reviews here, but I do not recommend their crabcakes.
- Central Market
- Vin Bistro
Better than CM, but that might have been the wine effect ;-).
I wasn't very hungry that dad so I only ordered the crab cake appetizer. Freda's crabcake had a tasty crunchy exterior breading, and a perfectly seasoned crab mixture inside, The Oysters Rockefeller another person had looked really good, as did the fried catfish, and each were received with positive reviews. The breading on the catfish looked like panko, and they looked perfectly fried.
ScrumptiousChef, I hereby claim credit for checking out a place that hasn't been reviewed here yet!
Ms. Rene, have you tried this place yet?
