Hello, esteemed chowhounds --
Can anyone help me meet a bizarre
scavenger-huntalicious challenge to find "the best
place for cuttlefish" in NYC?
I know NY Noodletown puts heaps of it in certain soups
... any other suggestions?
Squid and cuttlefish are definitely both cephalopods
but they are different creatures. As a scuba diver
I've seen them both in their natural habitats and
they look very different. Squid are more streamlined
than cuttlefish. Also, cuttlefish change colors as
their moods change. They seem very intelligent
when they encounter divers. They tend to hover
near the human and change colors rapidly until they
get tired and scoot away. (I think squid are little
more timid.) Now I'm sure that's more than you ever
wanted to know about cuttlefish.
