Any of you hounders out there know where I might be able to source some fresh octopus? We are looking to grill and sous vide, and I'm having the darndest time locating an outlet that sells fresh ones....thanks!

    Any of the big supermarkets in Koreatown should have them available in their seafood departments.

      If you don't want to go as far as Koreatown, Woori Market (formerly Mitsuwa/Little Tokyo Marketplace) in the Little Tokyo Galleria has a good seafood department with lots of octopus. Sometimes they even have live ones swimming around.

        If you're in South Bay, I'd try 99 Ranch and Marukai on Artesia.

        17713 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia, CA
