Any ideas?

    Well do NOT order the crabcakes at The Senator - they use fake crab surimi!

    The ones at Ruth's Chris steakhouse were chock-full of real crabmeat but not much else.

    Jump Cafe have them on their Winterlicious menu which I think I'll try.

      Rodneys by Bay, but I wasn't a huge fan as the filler really overshadowed the flavour of the crab. Would much rather use the money to get more oysters instead.

      Harbour Sixty also serves crabcakes.

      hope that helps.

        Fire on the East Side serves very reliable, super delicious crab cakes, which also come in Benedict form.

          Morton's 'Jumbo lump crab cake' is very good.
          Toritos ' Spanish crab croquette' is more like a crab cake than croquette. But pretty tasty anyhow.
          Mogette on Mt. Pleasant used to have a nice one but that was a few months ago! Also Zee Grill a few doors down also featured them.

            I second Fire on the East Side's crabcakes.

            I also love Insomnia's curry crabcakes, on Bloor. It's been a few years since I've had them but man were they ever good.
