Eat this crabcake-hush puppy mashup at The Kings Oak​ inside Modern Brewery

The crushpuppies at The Kings Oak inside Modern Brewery are what you want when you’re having a beer: a little salty, a little sweet and decadent, they want a thirst quencher like the brewery’s Citrapolis or Kings Oak Pils. These little crabcake-hush puppy mashups have super light insides flecked with pieces of lump crab and crispy, craggy crusts. They’re served sauced up with a remoulade and a couple lashings of zippy hot honey that adds richness. With eight to an order, they are definitely shareable, but they go fast; order two.
