Wordless Wednesday – Side of Octopus With My Salad

After spending a few nights at The Raleigh Hotel in fabulous South Beach in Miami, Florida, I just had to try the Octopus Salad. $10 at lunch and $16 at dinner.

So would you try it?

    That looks delicious!

  2. Very interesting salad. I want to come back to your blog to see how it tasted, on Thursday of course…

  3. Lisa from Life with Lisa

    OMG that looks so delicious! I would eat that in a heartbeat, but I’m weird like that.

  4. I would have to say maybe. I love calamari, so I would prob give it a try. Sure looks pretty with the lovely colors.

    What was your verdict? Did you like it?

  5. I had octopus once, at a Greek restaurant. I thought it was funny how the little suction cups kept sticking to the inside of my cheek. It wasn’t bad.

  6. Jacqueline @Blessings Abound Mommy

    I don’t know… maybe if I didn’t pay for it, lol. It sure is pretty to look at though! 🙂

  7. BalancingMama (Julie)

    No way! I am a southern meat & potatoes kind of girl. That thing freaks me out!

  8. I would probably be ok trying the “legs” but I don’t think I could eat the whole thing. You are braver than I. LOL

  9. Wanda M

    UH, no thank you! My husband would love it!

  10. lIt’s actually scary to look at!

  11. Absolutely not *GAG*

    But it made for a pretty colorful picture!

  12. NOPE! I have eaten octopus made in several different ways, but not in a way that looks like THAT.

  13. Jen-Eighty MPH Mom

    I don’t think I would have!! I KNOW I wouldn’t have!

  14. Ewwwww!!!! NOOOOO way!!! I don’t even like seafood.
    Its creepy looking!

  15. {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker

    Aww, sad 🙁

  16. There’s no way, not even if I was starving…just looks too creepy. 🙂

  17. It’s definitely beautiful! I don’t know how I’d feel about that much octopus. I’ve only ever had it in small chunks.

  18. Dominique @Dominique's Desk

    Octopus Salad..haven’t tasted that before. How was it? Yummy?

  19. You are a braver woman than I. Actually, I just may try it…

  20. Absolutely I would try it! I linked up and am a new follower. I also have a linky today for Wordless Wednesday for my 3 year old Miss E enjoying Chocolate Molten Cake.

  21. I like eating calamari so I might like octopus. But, not sure could do it.

  22. I don’t do sea food. but I’d eat that lettuce and such under it 😛

  23. I would but I don’t know about my human.

  24. I would try it! We had canned octopus before so I know what it tastes like lol… although I’m not sure I would pass up a good “other” salad lol

    WOW I’d have to say a big NO WAY, personally I dont like the looks of it or the textures of that kind of seafood, I think it should of stayed in the water and not be put on a plate, sorry I just freak out at stuff like that, I do know people eat some strange things in this world after having been to China, it is an eye opener thats for sure, and I know my husband would eat it and not think twice about it, as long as he doesnt start requesting that I make it at home, LOL, Glad to hear you liked it, I guess its always a good thing to be adventurous and try new things, but for me, I like usual meat & potatoes, (regular meat that is, beef, chicken, pork) no weird stuff for me-
    thanks for the picture 😉

  26. Oh Lord. I’m in the no way crowd. If someone set that in front of me, I’d jump.
    At least they sliced the head off…(or was that consumed before the picture?)
    I swear, girl, I have seen fish wash up to shore that looked more appealing than that.
    It looks like they caught it afire. Octo-Crisp!

  27. Tenille

    OMG absolutely not! I don’t eat any seafood and that is the stuff of nightmares for me!

  28. Not a chance. 🙂 You are braver than I am. I will admit that it’s a pretty salad….

  29. Jen

    Oh hell to the yeah I’d eat that…………it looks yummy!
