Seafood staple: I’ll never forget the first time I saw a plate of cooked octopus. It was in Toronto’s famous Greektown on the Danforth district at a restaurant that — thankfully — no longer exists. We had gone to Greektown to have dinner with our friend, Sarah, and wound up at this particular restaurant because it was the only place in the neighbourhood that didn’t have a long line of people waiting for a table. That should have been a clear warning sign that the restaurant’s quality might be questionable, but we were hungry and didn’t feel like waiting to get into any of the popular places down the block. What a mistake!
