Jerry's Seafood - Short Lunch Report

elyhtak | Mar 25, 2003 01:34 PM

Well after receiving the recommendation for my lunch plea and reading some pasts posts on this board, I tried Jerry's Seafood for lunch today. My initial comment is: woah crab meat. I started with a cup of crab bisque ($7.25) and followed that with the Baby Crab Bomb cooked the Firecracker style ($25.95). My Baby Bomb included two sides, for which I selected steamed brocolli (the daily special) and apple sauce. The crab bisque was more was more what i would call VERY creamy cream of crab soup - felt like I drank a pint of heavy cream afterwards - and while it had good flavor and a cup's worth of crab, it was not as complex in taste as a bisque and lacked the texture, which I find crucial. The Baby Bomb was 6 ounces of crab deliciousness. This is not a crab is crab, a big ball of crab with some mayonaise, pepper, and other seasonings sparingly mixed in. I like spiciness so the firecracker style was perfect for me and with lemon squeezed on top it reminded me of eating steamed crabs minus the work.

All-in-all I definitely ate my money's worth of crab and definitely feel I had a successful lunch experience. I wish I could have tried the raw clams and oysters they had but I was a bit crab-focused. I would certainly recommend Jerry's to anyone looking for a good crab cake.
