Frederick said...

Oh gosh! That looks disgusting...octopus is something I don't think I could ever make myself put in my mouth. haha

michelleopal said...

Really? You chose to eat that?

It looks like something Jeff Probst would put in front of the survivors in competition.

You are a brave, brave man.

Jaja, pulpito pulpito!

Juju said...

Eeek!

Rachel Snyder said...

Why are people so grossed out about octopus? If it's prepared right, it can be quite tasty.

Topanga said...

Everything about that salad looks wonderful except for the octopus. What on earth possessed you to order that?

Dear Jorge Garcia,

Octopi are awesome, especially when deep fried. You know what else is awesome? You and Beth's jack-o-lanterns from last year. Any chance you would be willing to post a Pumpkin Carving Tutorial this year? You know, in all your spare time? I like to plan ahead.

Ps-my dog has a crush on your dog.

Brooke said...

I love octopus salad - ate it all the time when I was living in Italy. Yummy.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Is that not a calamari salad? I realize calamari is a 'squid;'

I think I saw Dave today. He even had his cheesy jokes and creepy smile.

Elizabeth said...

Disgusting. That is all.

Jennifer said...

I concur. It is chewy. And that second photo is excellent.

Ron said...

Yikes! My mom found an octopus in her seafood chowder one time - freaked her out...

Rachel said...

My 15 year old daughter loves octopus. But would gag over the salad. Go figure.

D. said...

Ah, tako (Octopus in Japanese)! I learned to love it while there, and thought the best way --though not the healthiest way--was quickly deep fried in tempura batter. MMMM!!! My daughters also love it this way. Can't find it like that here in NC. Enjoy!

You know I appreciate that pic because I'm doing the master cleanse and have not really eaten in 4 days... Your picture just helped me go another day! YOU ROCK JORGE!

ANY MORE MICHAEL EMERSON PICS?

Malea said...

My kids dig octopus.

Michelangelo said...

I had octopus & calamari in 7th grade. One of the little sucker things got stuck in my teeth. Never forgot the chewiness. That's actually one of the things I miss from the pre-vegetarian days.

Mindy said...

Wow, props to you for being so adventurous! I am decidedly NOT.

Jenea said...

Oh my God, you ate a piece of Calypso?( from the pirates of the caribbean)

Faith said...

I had arroz negro in Spain. I didn't find out until later that it is colored with squid ink. Hmm...it did have small squids in it, but I've never eaten octopus.

Persephone Sea said...

You're gross! That's mean and sick!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Two thumbs up for you for being adventurous enough to try it! I am not that brave. :)

Dr Mum said...

Its not cruel because the octopus still has seven more arms/legs?

nollyposh said...

You sure THAt's safe?

Is that cause Dave died? said...

Looks yummy to me.
