    Octopus, cuttlefish, squid...all delicious to me. Very underappreciated in the states that's for sure. Excellent episode. 👍

    If you order grilled octopus and it's rubbery, for god's sake send it back and ask them to prepare another order properly. Grilled octopus with a nice char on it is incredible.

    Implying that if they couldn't get it right the first time, they'll do it right when you ask them.

    I remember growing up in New York my neighborhood had a proper fish monger shop, a butcher shop, a real deli, et., that has been lost to a great extent and certainly now the prices on specialty shops are by necessity much higher than they were back then. A lost cultural way of life.

    They are still around but in the ethnic neighborhoods. The problem is that white people are too intimidated to visit.

    I love octopus, it's very mild and not really fishy at all. I lean just look at the size of the tentacles. That's a nice chunk of meat.
