Calamari Steak?

  • j

Good calamari steak anywhere? I've tried Casablanca on Lincoln in Venice a few times and it's just fair. I've heard Bob Burns serves it. Anyone had it there? Thanks.

  1. Had FABULOUS calamari steak this weekend at Seafood Market Cafe on the "promenade" at Hermosa Pier. They put Pako (not sure how to spell that), a japanese breadcrumb like thing on it, and (I think) deep fried it. Wow. Crispy, almost tempura like crust, super super delicate squid . . . a must try.

    Also, Terried Sake House, a little down-home japanese dive on Santa Monica blvd between Barrington and Barry, north side, couple doors down from 50s cafe, has it, my japanese boyfriend says it's really good, tho I haven't tried it.
