    There was a restaurant in town here that served crayfish tails. They were kept in a glass tank so you could chose the ones that you wanted. It lasted about 4 months. No idea why it closed.

    Most people think of northern lobster when it is mentioned. These are Florida/Caribbean lobster, aka crayfish. I've caught 10+ pounders.

  8. I've always thought of crayfish (crawfish or crawdads) as small lobsters, but we don't get ones up here that get that big.

    This seems a good topic, our crayfish are similar to your American lobster, the ones I were given were from I'm guessing a 1 to 2 kg cray. That one made a huge sammich that I only just got through, the slices were half an in inch thick. I can get huge ones if I want but the ones I got were perfect. I've got full ones in the freezer in the garage. I'll try to take one out and take a pic. Now crawfish in murica I believe are cold water ?? We also have fresh water mini frays called koura. They are similar to your crawfish, small sweet morsels. There's a creek about 40 mins away where I can get them. Crayfish are in the ocean. My friend has a holiday home in kaikoura, the home of crayfish.
    Kai means food,koura means sea I think? They are very expensive $40 for an average size.

    That piece of bread is about 50% wider than normal bread. A meal in itself.

    My fave Chinese restaurant is called Daphne's, prolly giggle it, they have live crays in about 3 tanks, and blue cod swimming away in the tanks as well. It's a very popular place. I normally hire a room for 10 when we have a family function. We love it there, it's always packed which is why I get our own area.

    I just took a look - the food looks brilliant. One of the photos was this - I'm not sure if its a crayfish:
