Step Out the Box

Before I describe this taste of heaven, I need the audience to step out the box. This dish is Grilled Mediterranean Octopus. It’s complimented with warm Yukon Gold potato salad and chive oil. There are a variety of flavors floating throughout the dish. The octopus is meaty like lobster, but with a twist. I thought it would be similar to squid, but it was actually better. The chive oil goes great with the grilled octopi, and it adds a hint of green to the scene. The collaboration of colors makes the dish look more appealing and appetizing. Overall, the idea of grilling the octopus instead of frying it makes the Small Plate unique to its audience. 

FYI: Bistro VG

FOOD TIP: Octopus and squid are in the same family.


  1. I wouldn't try this dish because #1 its an octopus and #2 I don't even like lobster. So I know I definitely wouldn't like octopus. All very disgusting! Lol but hey if others like it then that's their choice. You just won't catch me eating it.

  2. I'm glad you checked out the post of the day. Its a dish that you definitely have to be open with, but its not for everybody lol. Hopefully, you will like the (Valentine's Day) post for tomorrow. Thanks again for the view and have a great day.

  3. I tried grilled octopus in Spain and, if done right, it really can be delicious! I agree that you have to step out of the box and get over the fact that it's octopus. I was able to do that and I really enjoyed it. I'm excited to go check out Bistro VG now.

  4. I would love to try the octopus in pasta or fried like calamari. Its got a different taste, but it was a good experience. I hope you enjoy Bistro VG. Let me know when you visit. Its a very nice restaurant. Thanks for your comment. Have a great day!
