A friend of mine had recently tried crawfish for the first time and she told me how much she loved it. I couldn’t understand why she was so crazy about something that looked like it just came out of some swamp, but when I finally tried it at the Tasty Crab House I understood completely! The Cajun seasoning made the whole experience feel like an out-of-body experience, where I had left my body to be taken on this delicious journey to savory heaven! If you’ve never tried crawfish before, I recommend giving it a shot if you have an opportunity.

Why it’s good to try new things

First of all, as a fitness and wellness coach, I’d say trying new things is essential for your well-being. It is a great way to step outside of your comfort zone and experience something different. It can also be a lot of fun, and you never know – you might just end up liking something that you never thought you would. That’s what happened when I decided to try crawfish for the first time at the Tasty Crab House in Poughkeepsie, NY. The restaurant specializes in seafood cuisine with a wide variety of dishes on their menu including seafood pasta, crab legs, ceviche, oysters, and clams – and everything was amazing! I’ve seen crawfish on TV and never in person so I thought I should give it a shot! I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty they were! I was told by my server they are often served in sauces but they are also delicious on their own as well.

Feeling adventurous?

If you’re in the mood to try something new, why not go for crawfish? This delicacy is often served up in Cajun restaurants and can be a fun and tasty experience. I recently tried it for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The crawfish were succulent and had great flavor with delicious cajun seasoning. It was also served with a corn-on-the-cob and a boiled potato. If you’re feeling brave, give them a try, and don’t forget to enjoy some other seafood dishes while you’re there as well!

The ambiance

As soon as you walk in, you’re hit with the smell of spices and delicious seafood. The decor is nautical-themed, with nets and seafaring paintings hung on the walls. The restaurant is spacious with lively nautical-themed decor everywhere. The best part of the decor, however, is the graffiti-style drawings/writing on the walls. They might come across as a bit overwhelming, but then you realize that it’s exactly the world of social media we live in, so the writings really set the tone for the restaurant.
