Where to buy squid?

Where in the world would a peson find squid tubes and tenacles to make calamari? I want to have sushi and calamari and find some other things Japanese, I know calamari isn't really Japanese, but it's what I ate at the Japenese place. I just don't remember what else there was.

We've bought it a Safeway many times.
It's frozen but...still it's pretty good.

Unfortunately, Safeway was taken from us. Most of the North Texas ones were closed. I guess I can look at Walmart tomorrow.

Ahh TexasT. Do you know where Lake Tawakoni is? We're in the middle of no where southeast of Greenville. We don't have anything out here like that. Thank you though!! If I get out into Dallas when I see my Mammaw, I'll have to go by there.

Any supermarket with a fish dept. or a fish market that doesn't have squid will order it for you. Just ask.

Okay, just to state the obvious to make sure we are using the same terms:

Calamari IS squid - the name is Italian and the name is used with variations in spelling throughout the Mediterranean region. In Japanese it is Ika.

Sushi is a style of preparation of a dish - with recipe variations which may or may not include raw seafood.

You may be able to get the already cleaned and frozen whole squid body tubes and tenticles (they come as seperate items) from your Wal-Mart Supercenter. Not all stores carry the same things "in store" - and if they can order them for you will depend on what is available from their warehouse. If you don't find them either in the "thawed" seafood case or the frozen section - ask the manager of the meat/seafood department if they can order them for you.

As Gretchen and Andy M. noted - any other store with a seafood counter should also be able to help you.
