The crab, are the famous "blue crab" of the southern Norwold region. These are often seasoned with "Great Bay Seasoning", giving them a very distinctive flavour. In the upscale restaurants, the 3-5in crabs are opened and the meat is mixed into a "cake" or some other dish. It is the common taverns that eat them properly however, with mallet, fork, and prying knife to get in past the shell and acquire the delectable meat within. 8 to 10 of these puppies are eaten in a single sitting. Beer is the proper drink to have with crabs.

The price of seafood increases in a country without harbours or fishermen. Easily 2 to 3 times the price for the landlubber kingdoms, depending on the actual distance from the shore.

All of the main dishes are served with a baked potato...or Averoigne "potato fries".

Of course, more exotic fish and crustaceans are served in some of the more rare, upscale places. These can run up to 100 times the price.
