19. Spicy Octopus at Katana's
Spicy octopus salad can seem daunting if you've never tried the eight-tentacled creature, but well worth it if you are feeling adventurous. Katana serves theirs cold, with very little to dress it up. The light sauce is not really "spicy," but adds a kick more than anything, giving the slightly-chewy octopus great flavor. The small plate will only run you $3.50, but chances are you won't be able to stop after the first.
