Taverna Nikos Blogging: Octopus and Cake

I recently went to Taverna Nikos and tried octopus for the first time. A whole tentacle was marinated in a vinaigrette and served with a side salad. It was surprisingly good and very tender. I enjoyed the octopus quite a bit and will definitely order it again. I'd probably had itty bits of octopus in sushi rolls before, but that's just not the same.

Chef Giorgios's mom made a wonderful cake for me, too!

  1. Looking at your plate, did you feel like you were at the Mos Eisley Cantina?

    I don't think I've ever seen octopus served that way. Pretty cool.

    I've loved octopus in many things, but not everyone feels that way.

    Conversation in my first workplace ca. 1990.

    George: Octopus/squid. Same thing.
    Buddy: No. Not true. Squid is like eating fried rubber bands. Octopus is like eating boiled tires.
