The other day I took a friend to a Japanese restaraunt. It was very busy, so we ate at the sushi bar. I had sushi comprised of rice, spicy albacore, seaweed salad, shrimp, and a soypaper wrap. Tasty. Then, for kicks, I tried some Idako (baby octopus). It was pretty good, but in retrospect I think it was canned and not fresh, and we probably got ripped off. It looked exactly like the picture on the left. It had a soy-ish taste to it. Over all not bad, and quite fun to eat an entire animal in one gulp, sans beak. Talk about nutrition, right? I mean, you're getting the brains, the vital organs, the tissues, everything. Everything those little baby octopodes abosorbed are now absorbed by me. Top of the food chain, baby.
