johnb Posted March 24, 2006 Share Posted March 24, 2006 Just a crabby note. After wanting to try it for a long time, I finally made it to Jerry's Seafood in Lanham for lunch today. I tried the "Jr." version of the crab bomb, with slaw and (today's special) green beans on the side, preceeded by a cup of crab bisque.The crab is coming from Venezuela these days. Of course, the ChesBay season doesn't open until April 1, so that's to be expected right now. Based on Joe's comments above, however, it probably continues indefinitely. So if you insist on local crab, beware.The bisque was really fine. A thick and sherry-tasting cream sauce with crab perched on the top. It all went down well. Let's not talk about calories here. And they bring you quality oyster crackers, Waterman brand if memory serves.The crab bomb (junior) was as I've heard it to be. Broiled/baked not fried, with in excess of a cup of pure crab meat I'd say, with very little filler and that more sauce than bread. Served in a metal oval baking dish straight out of the oven. A nice crust formed, and the whole thing tasted about a crabby as could be imagined. One can only wonder what it would be like with the local product. The sides were good too--the slaw was crunchy and not too sweet, and the beans were remarkably buttery, soft yet with a bite.On the whole, a good nearby place to satisfy a crab cake craving. Not cheap. The bisque was $7.50, and the junior bomb was about $25. The full size bomb is closer to $35 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
