From July to November, you can find âsquidâ that has gained full weight during the season. Squid is a food known to be effective in preventing adult diseases because it contains a large amount of healthy ingredients such as DHA, EPA, and taurine. Thanks to its light flavor and chewy texture, it can be cooked in a variety of ways. Starting with stir-fried squid, a Korean national rice thief, to squid sashimi where you can enjoy the freshest squid, to deep-fried squid that is deep-fried every day in clean oil! Here are 5 of the best squid restaurants that fall in love with their addictive chewiness.
