I finally found a good recipe for crab cakes. What kind of sauce or condiment do you eat yours with? I thought I would ask the experts.
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 6:09:21 PM EDT
mustard only

Condiments are used to mask the taste of a so-so crabcake. In my opinion, if you need a condiment, don't bother with the crabcake. Go to McDonalds. The flavor is in the meat.
I broil mine then I just squeeze a little lemon on it.
Has anyone ever gone to the Seafood Market (one in Annapolis and a few others elswhere) and bought their large jumbo cake, costs about $9 or 10 each (last time I checked)? The best!

I was always under the impression that G&M had some of the best crabcakes.

G&M is by far the best crabcake I have ever had. It is right off of 695. Did u know that they are made by Timbucktoo over off of Rt 100. I think it is cokeacola drive. MMM best $11 crabcake you will ever eat.

Tell me more: Do you pan fry it, then broil it? I've tried it with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and it is delicious. I was just checking to see if it is eaten any other way.

Isn't G&M on Hammonds Ferry Rd near the intersection with Nursery? Right near Snyder's Willow Grove restraunt that you can see from the Beltway.

"Hella's", the old "Millersville Inn" has had some great crabcakes the last few years. They've been under different management from time to time, and sucked royally, but lately, the food has been very good, lunchtime, anyway. It's off Veteran's Highway, near I-97 Exit 10 , near the old AA County police/fire station.

I work very near there and we treat ourselves to a cholesterol bomb for lunch about once a month . . . good flavor and almost more than I can eat.

Ocean Pride makes damn good cakes!

Since no one has mentioned it...Angelina's on Harford Road. And for the condiments...nothing.

There are all kinds of ways to do it, i guess whatever floats your boat. I simply broil it till its golden brown, then a little splash of lemon juice on it. I like the taste of the crab meat itself (backfin, that is).

I've eaten at Timbuktoo before, and funny you mentioned it, because I told my wife recently that I wanted to go back for their shrimp stuffed crab cakes. Unfortunately, my wife didnt like that place, so it might take some work to get her there again.

I think I know the place. Used to look like a dive, but now it looks like some sort of authentic greek resteraunt on that road which runs parallel to 97 north.

G&M is very good.

Cocktail sauce with alot of fresh white horse radish.

I don't know any place around the DC beltway.

I'm making a fresh batch tomorrow so I'll try that.

G&M is definitely the best crabcake around, if you can finish a double crabcake platter you are badass, $21 seems kind of steep, but you have to try them to understand how big and good they are. Right down the street from G&M's is The Olive Grove which is also owned by the owners of G&M's, their crabcakes are just as good as G&M's. They also own another place in Glen Burnie, but I can't remember the name of it right now, I think it is The Sunset something or the other.

Sorry, maybe I shouldn't say anything here but I have to give that a -1. I've never actually eaten their crabcakes before but their prices are outrageous!

Lately I've been getting mine from Milano's here in Parkville on Waltham Woods Rd. They're about $11. and are pretty damn big. They're under new management recently and have been using slightly more filler but are still really good.

As far as condiments... I use only a tiny ammount of yellow mustard and lemon juice for a little extra flavor. Old Bay is usually already cooked in but a little extra never hurts either.

What is this G&M place?

BTW Calvert House Inn in Riverdale has a decent crab cake. I have heard the ones at Annapolis Yaught Club are the best in the state but you can't eat there unless you are a member.

It's a little hole-in-the wall kinda place just off Nursery Road & 695.

Besides Crab Cakes (which they are known for) the pizza isn't bad (especially for MD) and the breakfast rocks (they use a really good breakfast sausage).

Thanks for the pointer to G&M. Hope to visit there Saturday for lunch.
