Greek Cuisine

One of my favorite parts about the Greek islands was that there was seafood everywhere! Every little taverna showcases its wares either in a small refrigerated case in front of the restaurant, or, in the case of octopus, hanging out to dry on the clothesline! It's very common to see several sets of slippery octopus tentacles waving gently in the breeze as you walk by.
I tried some of my companion's roasted octopus, and it was delicious--the texture was very similar to calamari. During the dinner hour (which in Greece starts at 9 p.m) it's also fun to walk around and check out the outdoor grills, where many of the tavernas prepare their seafood for all to see and smell.

These octopus tentacles look like 'shades of Pirates of the Caribbean'. Hard to believe they taste good!
