BBQ Baby Octopus

I am looking for a recipe or restaurant that serves whole barbecued baby octopus (sounds cruel, I know). I had it once at a restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. It was grilled on an open pit barbecue and was very tender and not chewy like squid/calamari. I have not seen it anywhere else though I've looked.

      I tried this and loved it...definitely tastes of the grill.

    2. Tako Grill in Bethesda.

      1. Also when you braise it throw a cork in the liquid...helps make it tender as well.
