Crab trucks

coastcat | May 2, 2006 02:15 PM

It's spring, the time of year when a young woman's fancy turns to thoughts of steamed crabs. Might be a good idea to take inventory of the local crab trucks, for those days when one doesn't want to make the long trek to Cantler's, etc. I remember seeing so many crab trucks in my younger days, but they're relatively scarce now (at least in eastern Montgomery County).

I just called Seafood In The Buff, after noticing that their "satellite location" (aka truck) had yet to appear in their usual spot along Rt. 29 just south of Randolph. They lost their permit to park there, so they've relocated the truck to Cloverly across the street from Safeway (New Hampshire Ave just north of Briggs Chaney Rd). This means they're more or less next to the new Fractured Prune franchise. Mmm, crabs and doughnuts.

So where are the other trucks? One that used to be in the spot that Seafood In The Buff vacated had moved to Langley Park, somewhere near Samantha's, but I don't know if it's still there.
