we are also big fans of calamari fritti.

have you ever tried squid flash grilled, kgirl?

it has to be done as roadfix mentioned, yaki, which are little skewers carefully turned very close to hot coals. squid cooks in just a few seconds that way.

or the thai style i mentioned. also very quickly (less than a minute) grilled or broiled.

the trick is to have the coals or whatever direct heat source so hot it chars the edge a bit while the squid cooks through in just the blink of an eye.

yeah, at least tako/octo has a certain sweetness to it. ika is just blah.

so far, the only sushi that i will not eat is ikura, or salmon roe.

it's like chunky snots in mucus. from a fishes' nose.

i've had monkfish liver sushi (gunkan style like the uni), and duck hearts (in a sort of futomaki), and so many other weird ones. mostly from eating omakase.

but i will not eat ikura.

Sitting At The Sushi Bar So here we are back home in Hawaii. One of many restaurants that is a MUST for us is Genki Sushi. This is a chain that orginates in Japan. [I]LOVE IT![/I] Small plates are filled in the back kitchen, and placed on a conveyor belt, that goes around the room. You can either sit at a stool/counter, or at a table next to all of this lusciousness going by you. You grab any plate you like (please don't put it back though) as many as you like, and you pay by the plates color. [ATTACH]21917[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]21918[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]21919[/ATTACH] I never thought to tally up our feasts before Buckytom brought this up on a different thread... My closest count for both of us on this visit is 52 pieces, a bowl of edamame, two miso soups, one somen salad, one teri-chicken bowl, one karaage chicken, and two orders of baked mussels. Our tab was under $40 USD [I]including[/I] tip! Oh, did I meantion it's BYOB? :pig::pig: (2 little piggy's, :lol:) 3 stars 1 reviews
