Faidley's, Lexington Market
Posted 28 January 2008 - 11:10 AM
So this Saturday, I went to Lexington market, resisted the Berger cookie stand, and ordered one lump crabcake, fried.
It was really nice- I liked that they mixed in some of the crab "mustard" into the cake to make it a little more creamy. Most crabcakes are just meat and spices, but the "mustard" flavor was a nice surprise.
I would definitely go back.

The crabcake on the other hand was delicious. Probably the best one I have ever had. Just tons of lump delicious crab, no shell whatsoever in the meat, and a little bit of a msutard binder. Delicious.
Yep, my husband was very happy with his straight-up crab cake. My fried haddock sandwich was HUGE! A maybe 12-inch fillet fried as two pieces, given to me with two slices of wonderish bread and some decent lettuce and mealy tomato. The hubs used my bread to turn his crab cake into a sandwich and I ate as much I could of the totally-worth-the-calories, surprisingly greaseless, supercrunchy only on the outside fish with the better than average tartar sauce. I still needed help, though, which made me a little sad, because I wanted to finish All the Deliciousness!

Skip the cream of crab soup, which was awful. For five and a half bucks I might not expect a bunch of crab, but the soup should at least resemble a cream soup or bisque, whereas this one pretty much had the appearance (and one imagines the flavor) of a starchy pot of papier mâché paste, only piping hot.

A great sandwich which is their real signature.
The Narrows still has the best traditional crabcake and cream of crab soup. Captain's Table in Ocean City has-by far-the best red crab soup along with superb crab guacamole. Years ago Angelina's had great crab imperial but that is all gone now as are their crab cakes which a year ago we drove from Reston to try. Ten years ago Angelina's was phenominal. No longer.
