I will be meeting up with an aunt and cousin for a few days in Baltimore this weekend for an event. We have Saturday totally free, and we want to get the best crab we can (a) nearby and (b) without breaking the bank. Any Baltimore-based Serious Eaters out there? What do you recommend for delicious, local crab? Crab cakes or the big buckets -- we Westerners just want crab! Dingy dive crab bars are totally OK.
For reference, we'll be staying in Linthicum Heights near the airport, so something nearby (or accessible by public transit -- does Baltimore have that?) would be preferred but not required.
Thanks in advance!
So, I asked this a few weeks back on a recipe (http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/05/glutinous-rice-chinese.html), but I'm hoping some of you folks can help. How do you go about buying or making really good red bean paste?
I am in love with red bean desserts, and I'd like to try my hand at a few I can't find in nearby Asian bakeries (red bean turnovers with puff pastry are at the top of my list). I work close to Koreatown and regularly go through HMart, but what do you look for in buying red bean paste? Are there good brands? Seeing as I don't read Korean or Chinese, how can I tell if the paste is thick and chunky or really smooth?
Alternatively, is it easy to make red bean paste? I have a food processor...
Thanks in advance for any advice!
