It’s a Good One: Slimy Raw Octopus

When the Tako Wasabi, “salted raw octopus with wasabi flavor” ($3.50) arrived at the table at Kenka, I didn’t want to eat it. It looked gooey and I feared a squid gut flashback. But in fact, this stuff is a perfectly addictive bar snack. It’s cold, spicy, and salty. It’s firm and not chewy. It is, folks, a good one.
