A quintessential Baltimore food, a staple of the local cuisine throughout Maryland. Generally made with lump meat or backfin from the Maryland Blue Crab, egg, breadcrumbs, and Old Bay. Often served on a sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Many places throughout the region have signs reading Best Crabcakes in Town, but it can't be true for every single one of them. Buyer Beware.
