Clean Catch, a dead simple yet upscale fish market located near Mellow Mushroom in Myers Park, serves up a freaking delightful crab cake.

The exact address is 2820 Selwyn Ave. Suite 150 Charlotte, NC 28209

Crab cakes cost $13 and Clean Catch sells about 200 each week on average.

It’s so clean inside Clean Catch and I always want to take a big bite out of the tuna on display. I love tuna.

The crab cake comes with a generous helping of their homemade dipping sauce. Yum.

Pro Tip: Ask for a sample of their fancy oil because you’re not supposed to cook this in typical olive oil.

Don’t forget, you only sear it on one side – then you flip it and put it in the oven.

Go home, bring it out of the to-go box and marvel at your crab cake.
