I like to plan my traveling based on food options at a time, and over the July 4th weekend, Dwayne and I went down to Baltimore for a mini getaway. If you have never been to Baltimore before, it’s a super cool place to check out. I’m in love with the old cobblestone streets, the historical row houses and of course the FOOD! And whenever we are in town, we love to have Maryland Blue Crabs. One of my favorite spots for Blue Crabs is LP Steamer. They are open year-round. A lot of crabs’ places are closed for the winter. These steamed blue crabs are the best you’ll ever have! Steamed Maryland style with lots of Old Bay and a few of their family secrets to make them extra delicious. Don’t believe it’s the best blue crabs in town, well it has appeared on Food Paradise, Man Vs. Food, Trip Advisor, and the New York Times. What to Order at LP Steamers?
Since they have the best crabs in Baltimore, trust me, I tried many crabs’ spots, get the steamed blue crabs. There are four different sizes of blue crabs, small, medium, large, and jumbo. Go with either the large or jumbo. We always order the jumbo whenever they have it on hand. With ordering the Jumbo size, I love how big and juicy the crab is. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. An order of Jumbo dozen will cost you around $125.
I would recommend six large crabs per person if you are looking for a full meal. Dwayne and I can eat 6 Jumbo a piece. I always come there on an empty stomach because I want to finish all my crabs. The crabs come with a small fork and a mallet to open your crabs. The crabs take around 25-30 mins to cook, so we order appetizers and a beer. LP Steamers has more than crabs too. We always order the Old Bay and Old Bay fries. They have got a mixture of fried seafood, sandwiches like the fried oyster po’boy and soft-shelled crab, and of course, a vast selection of steamed seafood. If you ever are in the area, you should stop by and try the Maryland Blue crabs at LP Steamers.
