Eating Sannakji (Live Octopus) 낙지

My friend, Annie, and I spent a weekend in Busan. While there, we decided to try some 낙지 (nakji)! 낙지 is a small live octopus. When it is ordered the chiefs take a small octopus out of the fish tank, chop off its legs, sprinkle some oil on top, and then serve it to the customers immediately. When you ask for raw octopus…you can’t get any more raw than this!

It was such a great experience. I could feel the legs sucking to my tongue, teeth, and cheeks! It was also pretty tasty! 🙂
