The idea of eating slithering octopus tentacles may strike some as super gross, but it's all the rage at Sik Gaek, a Korean barbecue and seafood restaurant in New York City.
"'Live' octopus is one of the most popular [foods] in our restaurant," Jung Sung-hyun, a Sik Gaek server, told Circa.
The octopus isn't really served "live," but chopped tentacles continue to squirm for 20 minutes.
For the dish known as sannakji, chefs remove the octopus's brain and chop off its tentacles.
The rest of the octopus, squirmy tentacles and all, are served with chili sauce and sesame oil.
Now it's your turn to weigh in: Would you eat a live octopus? Vote in Circa's poll, and explain your answer in the comments section.
