Where can I buy octopus in Vancouver?

repartee Jul 4, 2009 09:29 PM

Having lived in Japan and gotten used to the relatively cheap availability of octopus, I wonder where I can find it here.

H Mart had a cooked leg for $7.00.

Is there anyplace else interesting?

    the salmon shop at granville island almost always has fresh b.c. octopus.

      Not knowing the weight of that cooked leg you mentioned, but for reference, today at Fujiya I saw they had it on sale, uncut, for $5.75 per 100g. A bit more if you want it sliced, but why would you bother to pay for that when you can do it yourself. :)

      I know they sell it at Kim's Mart as well.

        I have seen it at T&T in the freezers as well.

        Angel Seafoods and Fujiya come to mind.
