I knew what a great crab cake was. Then I ate Mrs.
Faidley's lump meat crab cake. It's the gold
standard that all other crab cakes should aspire to and
which l doubt any crab cake will reach.
Solid lump crab, subtly bound together.
for a half dozen oysters too. This time of year
they're from Louisiana, but tasted fresh out of the
only problem with Faidley's is that they're in Baltimore's
Lexington Market. There's a lot of good eating to be
had there, but I can't see visiting the market without not
passing go and heading directly to Faidley's.
