Baltimore crab soup thread

baltoellen | Jun 22, 2007 07:11 AM

I've been on a hunt for really good Maryland crab soup for what seems like forever. I try a cup, at least, of it at almost any new place I go that has it on the menu, and am almost always disappointed.

I'm not looking for anything exotic--no pink salt, nothing like roasted anything in it--but just a classic, crabby, peppery, with decent veggies put together in the right proportions in a bowl of hot soup.

I think the best bowl I've had of this local fav in the past few months has been at that lunch counter in Cross Street Market (right at the Charles St. entrance--and the name escapes me, maybe Steve's Lunch?) and in the past, I thought Theresa's in the B'dwy Market was pretty good, except a bit heavy on beef.

So, what are your picks for the best bowl of Maryland crab soup in the greater Baltimore area?
