I ate an octopus Dec. 21st, 2010 @ 08:25 PM Reply

Today for the first time I ate an octopus. I questioned it at first, especially after losing a little bit of my appetite when I attempted to cut the head off and it popped. I sucked it up and started with the legs. It wasn't too bad, but it's not something that I would make a habit of eating. I think if I had the opportunity to eat it again I would.

What are some of the most "exotic" foods that you've ever ate or what are some of the uncommon foods that you want to try?

I really don't know. I think the spicy sauce that they put on it really covered up a lot of its natural taste. In my opinion it was kind of bland and a little chewy like you'd expect it to be. I couldn't really describe its taste as it really didn't taste like something I ate before.

I find fresh eel a tasty exotic food. I like how it almost has the same texture as chicken.

Where's my soy sauce now?

This is on my To-Eat list for sure. You're the second person that's said something about it to me tonight.

If that's legal I wouldn't mind trying it, but I've never heard of anyone eating it before.

Well I guess I have to add another thing to eat in my life time. I wouldn't mind trying that out sometime.

I'm in my 20's and it was the first time that I ever saw it in a restaurant in my life. I'm assuming it was the only place that served it in the entire city. Perhaps a few of the foreign restaurants served it, but like I said this was the first one I ever saw it in.

American food = cow, pig, chicken, and a few fish.

I'm angry now. Octopi are my favorite creatures, eating one is an utmost sin in my ideology.

Ah, I remember the first time I had an "exotic" food. It was some spicy frog legs that my uncle had ordered in a Thai restaurant. In all honesty, they weren't that bad, but definitely not something I would try again. Being able to see the shape of the animal just fucks my mind up.

Octopi is plural for octopus.

I once ate a tentacle from one at a Chinese buffet. It was actually really chewy and the taste wasn't that good either. I really wouldn't recommend them myself unless you just want bragging rights.

Oh, I didn't know that you = the rest of the people in the world.

Yes, I'm completely aware that certain food isn't going to be different or exotic for certain groups of people, but it's quite obvious that it's something that isn't common where I live and it's probably unlikely that I'll ever run into a situation where I'll have the opportunity to eat it again.

It's not like I can go to the grocery store and buy it. Again, at least not in my area.
