Tennessean makes his return to Camden Yards for tomorrow's game as well as Sunday.  Been three years.

 

My wife is craving cream of crab soup. I need your all's suggestion for the best place around the Inner Harbor or Fells Point for such.

I'm going to Mama's tomorrow to get the Seafood Chowder.  Not the same thing but that place is so great.  Orange Crushes too.

Bo Brooks has the best Cream of Crab of any place I've ever been to... I liked the place better when it was a dump on Belair Rd at Frankford... since they moved to their much nicer place on the water off of Boston St, it has way less of a hole-in-the-wall vibe and I don't go there as much... but their Cream of Crab soup is still my all-time favorite... the crabs are excellent too, but pricier since they have higher rent on the water's edge... Canton is not exactly Fells Point, but if you are mobile it's a straight shot down, um, whatever-it-is (Aliceanna?) to Boston, a total of just a ~mile from Fells Point... 

 

EDIT: I'm suspicious of seafood places that aren't dumps... especially crab joints... dunno why, but I am...

Ask her to have a taste or two, close her eyes, and give us her critique!

 

ps:  Keep your eyes peeled to your right, or you might drive right by it... there's a parking lot between it and Boston St...

Big props, rshack. Awesome meal. Never seen so many crab chunks in a soup for $6.50.

Glad you liked it...

 

I spent years trying to figure out exactly what was in it besides crab... then I took my bride there (who doesn't even like anything seafood much)... she took one very small spoonful, and said, "Oh, they use cream of celery soup in the base, not just cream of potato.":  Plus a few other little things.  Duh.   Now she makes it at home...
