    You may have to call ahead to request it... just to make sure they have it that night.

    It's delicious. Enjoy. :)

        btw, do you know what its called in korean? (my gf speaks korean, but forgot what its called)

          It's called san-nak-ji (산낙지).

          San is "live" and Nakji is "octopus". Have fun.
