Day 229: Eat a tin of octopus

The smell was pungent – reminiscent of Pike Place market in Seattle. I was reminded of the octopi I saw floating around tanks at Shedd Aquarium a few weeks ago.
The texture was rubbery, which is what I had expected, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly fishy or salty (at least not compared to the anchovies I tried on Day 158.) The actual taste wasn’t all that far from chicken. In fact, I kind of liked it. I ate one piece…then another…then another.
While maybe not my new favorite food, I could see myself snacking on octopus in the future.
My next grocery list:
