crab cakes, steamed crabs, crab soup, crab pretzel, just something with some crab in it please. But for those of us who actually live here in the city—and by us I mean working shlubs, the 99 percent if you will—crab cakes are simply not a part of our daily existence. For people who know from good crab cakes, they’re just too expensive to eat very often. But this is supposed to be a seafood town—we are situated right on one of the greatest bays on the continent, after all. Thing is, at least within the confines of the more touristy areas of the city, Baltimore is dominated by chain or big, sit-down type restaurants. Where are the small, mom-and-pop joints that will fix you some simple, straight-up fish then? Well, they’re here, you just gotta know where to look, preferably by having someone willing to set aside any concern for their own regularity and cardiovascular well-being do the legwork. So here you go, and just in time for Lent—or for the less pious among us, the glorious 40 days every year when the Filet O’ FishTM, undisputed king of fast-food fish sandwiches, is on sale.
