If there was ever a location to open a restaurant, Fork, MD would be it. We're not sure what happened to Knife and Spoon, MD, but one thing we do know is that Fork is home to the Sunshine Grille. Sunshine Grille is a Greek and American restaurant featuring fresh, local ingredients, alongside a selection of craft beers and wines, all reasonably priced to keep you coming back. Part of their regular menu is the Maryland Crab Soup. Did they live up to the reputation of the Sunshine Grille? Let's find out!

Maryland Crab Soup

Sunshine Grille's MD Crab Soup is a tomato-based soup with a decent amount of crab, potatoes, green beans, lima beans, peas, onion, carrots, and possibly corn and one to two other ingredients.

The spice used in the soup is more peppery than Old Bay-ish. The crab meat, while ther were some decent sized chunks, is mostly in strands. Vegetables have some decent flavor to them, but they're not screaming 'fresh'.

Overall, this was a very good soup. The crab meat has a decent flavor to it when singled out. The spice hits you on the back end, and has that low burn that intensifies as you eat, and lasts well after your last bite. Again, while the vegetables weren't quite fresh, they still tasted pretty good. The broth was probably our only low point of the soup, as it had a predominately tomato flavor and not of a crab stock. But everything works well together and creates a soup worth ordering.
