Horrible Crabcake from Wholefoods!!

Charles Yu Dec 9, 2012 03:46 PM

Foodies beware!!
For Crabcake, stick with St. Lawrence market!!
Bought myself a $8, 6 oz piece of 'lump crab meat crab cake' from the newly opened Wholefoods in Markham today.
What a joke! DRY, GRAINY AND ABSOLUTELY BLAND and TASTELESS!! Their claim of sweet tasting crab meat...etc! Total BS!!!! What a waste of money!

      I find Wholefood's prepared food in Unionville is absolute inedible crap! Stay away from everything they make.

        Hello Callitasicit!
        You should have posted this warning much, much earlier!!!
        Noticed their prices at least 10% more than Ambrosia too!!
        :( !!!!!!

        I'm a whole foods fan but am not a fan of their fish counter. I have bought a filet full of bones and a spoiled filet, both expensive. After that I decided to stick with my usual spot Pisces.

          I'm not impressed with the offerings at the St. Lawrence market either...overpriced and lacking in lump.

            Customs allow the shipment of seafood. May be for good ones, one needs to order them directly from Maryland in the States?!
