Enjoy the crunchy and chewy texture and mouth-filling rich flavour of fresh squid.
Try the sashimi to understand the authentic taste of squid – is what people say in Hokkaido, where fresh squid is available in abundance. Every bite of the fresh raw squid is accompanied by the crunchy, chewy texture, and the natural sweetness of the beautifully transparent flesh. Spear squid and Japanese flying squid are the two most common kinds of squid served in Hokkaido. Spear squid is highly-prized for being more tender and tasty than other species, and goes great with a dash of soy sauce, while Japanese flying squid is recommended to cut into thin strips, a sashimi dish known as Ika Somen.
