Steamed crab, crab cakes, crab feasts . . . If there’s one thing that Marylanders are universally proud of, it’s Maryland blue crabs. The meat is sweet, tender and in abundance in Baltimore’s restaurants.
Better yet, buddy up to a local and eat like family – at a casual crab shack picnic table covered in newspaper, wielding a mallet and sharp knife to crack the crab and get at its succulent meat. Or hop on a crabbing charter out of the port and do it the old-fashioned way: learn to catch those crustaceans yourself!
