Eating Live Octopus in Korea

Korea is a land of unique culinary…ideas.

If you’re reading this from back home, you probably think of Korean food as being the K-Barbecue joint in town, or kimchi, rice, and soju.


The Octopus and I

Something I have always wanted to do since I watched Oldboy eight years ago was eat a live octopus.

Today I finally decided to do it and went to Noryangjin, Seoul. Once there I bought two octopuses – by accident, as I only wanted one – and went to a nearby restaurant, where a much needed beer was readied to wash the cephalopod down.

This is a video of me eating Octopus no.2.
