It was at a small Sushi joint called "Sushi Three", it is located about 15 mins. outside the city of Pittsburgh. Sushi is a real commodity here.

I love fresh octopus, it is one of my favorite things to order here in Isla Mujeres, MX. It is delicious in ceviche, cocktails, soup, tacos, paella, risotto...but my absolute favorite is when it's grilled with garlic & lime. Yum!!!

As for the octopus...
They were delicious and the texture was ideal, not rubbery at all, not too chewy. It has a slight sweetness to it which is hard to describe.

that's the stuff!!!!

next time, try something called hokkigai, or surf clam. aka arctic or atlantic surf clam.

it's the half red, half white-ish piece of fish that looks sort of like a crab claw.

same idea: subtle sweetness, firm texture. NOT ear cartiledge...

I eat baby octopus all the time, most notably in seafood chowder and the like.

Delicious.


EDIT: Surf clam rocks my world. It tastes like the ocean, but with a hint of sweetness and just the right amount of chew. I could probably eat a pound in a sitting when paired with the right beer (note: in this case, Orion is the right beer).

I had some octopus at an italian restaurant the other night. It was in a pasta along with vegetables and some bland oil sauce. It was different.

I had some sauted in a garlic butter sauce in Mexico last week. It was by far the best meal I had there. Tender and spiced just right.

WONDERFUL!!!!
Can't wait to have some more.

Wish I knew how to cook it.
