Crab Feast.

Crab Feast | Sally's Baking Addiction

Kevin and I don’t go out to dinner much because I live in my kitchen– but we decided to go out and celebrate THIS. Also, it’s tradition we pick crabs at least once a summer.

…and by “we” I mean Kevin because I am atrocious at this.

We went to The Gaslight in Philly. Never been there, but definitely going back. For $25 per person, we got a huge family style feast. A bunch of blue crabs, beers, and bottomless sides: cornbread, grilled corn on the cob, old bay mac & cheese, chipotle potato salad, and collard green slaw.

Old Bay mac & cheese! 

They do seasonal specials like this every Thursday. And luckily, all day on Thursdays because we went in the late afternoon before the dinner crowd so no one had to watch me take a billion pictures of our meal. #thatgirl

  1. all this sounds amazing, but esp that old bay mac and cheese!! because i’m into instant gratification and give up on cracking crab after the first claw. and yay, what a great thing to celebrate! counting down the days until i get my copy (:

  2. Love picking MD crabs! I’m not very good at it either. It’s more for the fun experience! Great pictures as always Sally.

  3. Sally you need to make an old bay mac and cheese recipe on your blog because I would make it in a heartbeat. What a fun night of celebrating the new book!

  4. I love a nice crab dinner. Always old bay too! What a fun celebration for your new book. I can’t wait to get my copy. I won’t know what to make first! I’m a sucker for truffles so I might try that chapter first. 

    Keep the pics coming!

  5. As a west coast girl I’ve never been to Philly. Can you believe it? But if I ever make it there, I need to stop at this restaurant. It looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lucky, ‘The Gaslight’ getting your awesome photography as advertising! Picture are gorgeous. What’s the yellow seasoning on the crabs? 

  7. Have you tried crab eggs before? They’re the best part!(I wish I can say’the bestest part’)
