Kind of crude to have a fish head on the table?
It's unthinkable to a lot of Americans to be served a fish with its head still stuck to it. It goes the same with chickens. Most Asians don't find it offensive to have the whole fish, chicken or duck on a plate. In fact, it indicates to us that it is indeed the type of fish or meat that we ordered! Most importantly, especially for fish, most parts are edible including the head. Of course, it has to be fresh if the whole fish is served. Most Asians prefer live seafood, and not frozen or refrigerated ones that you get from Wal-Mart or Lowes.
