The deal is you pay R185 for 500g of crayfish. You can have it hot or cold. I recommend cold – with some crusty bread and mayonnaise. I’d strongly recommend a chilled glass of wine to wash it down.
Sitting on the deck of Oyo, looking out over the water, it’s a real pleasure to enjoy one of these delightful morsels of taste from the sea.
As you munch on your food, you might bear in mind that the crayfish you are eating probably took 7-10 years to reach that size. 100 years ago they were considered worthless by fishermen and thrown away or ground up and sold to farmers as fertillizer. How times have changed.
But this is a great deal. Last summer I was charged R250 for a half crayfish in Paternoster. It was a rubbery, overcooked little thing. Probably no more than 180g. A glorified, overpriced prawn.
So get on down to Oyo!
