Questions & Answers on 10 Best Korean Food Restaurants in Shanghai
Asked by Mr.Eduardo from MEXICO | Apr. 09, 2009 11:59Reply
Do you know where i can find live octopus in Shanghai? I've been told it is a corean dish

Live octopus? I'm afraid it is not a corean dish. The cooked octopus can be found in many seafood restaurants in Shanhgai, but live ones are hardly found. You may go to the supermarkets or the seafood markets in Putuo District.
Answered by Mr.hanguolaohu from USA | Mar. 23, 2010 00:54

Mr.Eduardo, please ignore Miss.Serena07's comment, she is not Korean and is not knowledgeable about Korean food. If you want live octopus in Shanghai go to To Dam Gol. This is a country inn style place, with authentic very spicy Korean home cooking. The octopus is usually boiled in a soup or sauteed on a pan right in front of you, LIVE. To be honest, an uncomfortable experience but I wanted to try it to begin to understand what the fuss was about. After I ate it, I realized that octopus when it's cooked can become extremely tough and hard to chew, but eating it so fresh like that it was unusually tender. And then I began to understand :-)

To Dam Gol (토담골)
2918 Longmin Lu.
Near Wuzhong Lu, on Jinhui Nan Lu which becomes Longmin Lu.
