      Titan foods on 31st st, the Napoli or whatever olives, with lemon and garlic, are incredibly cheap and tasty.

        Big, big, big second for the Titans rec. If you're a fan of Grilled Octopus, there's is some of the best.

          They have grilled octopus there? I've just seen the marinated octopus and that is my favorite. I'm excited to see.

          As for olives, Titan foods and then Euro Mart too... on 31st Street a little bit south of 30th Ave.
