Kitara are a Danoran delicacy. Small, many-limbed crustaceans about the size of a chocolate, they have a delicate flavour reckoned by many to be the most sublime taste in the world. Their shells are soft and edible, and the whole Kitar is generally eaten in one go, often with a squeeze of lime juice.
Best served live, the Kitara are rendered unable to escape the table by inserting a sharp knife into a small dent next to its thorax, severing their major nerve cluster. While the legs can still move, co-ordination is impossible and the Kitar is unable to walk or jump away from the diner. A trained Danoran chef can prepare more than a dozen Kitara for the table in a minute.
