Maryland food is probably the best food in the US. Though, I may be biased, being from Maryland. But honestly, come to Maryland (specifically Baltimore, the best place to get all the food) and try any and everything on the list and you will love it! Obviously, most of the foods below are made of crab but, I mean, crab is the best, especially Maryland crab because we know how to cook it. So here are the foods Maryland is most popular for!
- Steamed Crabs!
Blue crabs of course, but if you have never had Maryland steamed blue crabs, you have never lived. Just season them with some old bay and grab a Natty Boh and you’re set for the night.
- Smith Island Cake
Now, I’ve honestly never heard of this but its apparently a really popular cake in Baltimore. It’s a ten layer cake with thin layers of yellow cake and chocolate frosting.
- Crab Cakes
Whether they’re broiled or fried, Maryland has the best! Why? Because we keep it simple, we don’t add vegetables or anything. Just crab, mustard, mayonnaise, old bay, and a few other things to keep it together. Maryland does it best, don’t let anyone tell you different.
- Berger Cookies
No, not burger, its Berger. They are delicious cookies topped with a mountain of chocolate frosting. They are a Maryland staple and you can’t leave without trying one, or two, or ten.
- Trasher Fries
They are not just your everyday fries. Trasher’s is based in Ocean City Maryland and your OC trip is not complete unless you’ve waited thirty minutes in line for a bucket of fries and some vinegar to go with it.
- National Bohemian Beer
Another Baltimore staple is the Natty Boh beer. Natty Boh with the crabs are everything. Grab a couple and watch the O’s play at Camden Yards. Nothing quite like it.
- Fisher’s Popcorn
Yet another OC favorite. You can’t leave Ocean City without grabbing a bucket of caramel popcorn from fishers. Or you can get some plain, or cheese, but the caramel is the best they have.
- Snow Balls
How do you get cool in the summer? Well in Maryland we fill a cup of crushed ice and cover it with flavored syrup. Yes, it is as delicious as it sounds. There is a snowball hut on almost every corner. Don’t forget to add the marshmallow, because you will not be sorry.
- The Orange Crush
Another alcoholic beverage made in Maryland. Just some orange vodka, triple sec, and orange juice with some sprite. Different bars might make it a little different but it’s the same basic recipe.
- Crab Soup
There are two different kinds. We have creamy of crab soup which is my favorite. It’s a creamy soup with spices and crab meat, not vegetables, thankfully. The second is the Maryland crab soup. This one has vegetables, crab, and broth. Try both and tell me which one you like best. Or be that person who mixes them together.
So there are some of the most famous Maryland foods. If you come to Baltimore or Ocean city, or anywhere in Maryland, you need to try at least half of these foods.
