“Octopus” has been synonymous with rejuvenation since ancient times. It is a high-protein, low-fat food that contains plenty of taurine , minerals, and amino acids to help the body absorb and break down calcium.
Furthermore, it is one of the ingredients often eaten on the table due to its chewy texture and rich flavor
. An “octopus” looks similar to an octopus and has a total of 8 legs, and the cub of an octopus is
called a “three-legged octopus.”
“Three-legged octopus” has thin feet and soft flesh, so it can be enjoyed by men and women of
all ages.

“Octopus” can be enjoyed in a variety of ways,
such as sashimi
, sauce, banjo, hot pot, soup, and shabu-shabu. Among them, “stir-fried octopus,” which is stir-fried with spicy sauce, “tantangi, ” where octopus is finely chopped raw, “octopus horong,” which is baked by wrapping it around chopsticks, and “yeonpo-tang,” which is boiled and eaten with various vegetables, are representative.

menu is “sebal octopus stir-fry,” made by frying fresh octopus purchased at the early morning market in a sharp, spicy sauce
