When eating crayfish in a restaurant

  • For ease of use in restaurants, crayfish are served either already cut or with a set of special devices.
  • The set of the simplest tools includes a slotted knife, a long fork, and scissors.
  • Cutting begins with a claw.
  • The claws are inserted into the slot of the aforementioned knife and cracked so that it is possible to get the meat out of the claw with a long fork.
  • Further, the tail is separated (it is also called a cancerous neck). The tail is either detached by hand with a twisting motion or cut with scissors. Then, again, with the help of the submitted fork, the meat is taken out.
  • At the end of the meal – hands are rinsed in a cup of lemon water served when serving the dish and wiped with an additionally served napkin. Note! Not the napkin you place on your lap!
  • Then you should proceed to the toilet room and wash your hands.
