LA Weekly's Description

If Mexican-style octopus is your thing, try the marinated-octopus tostadas with avocado that are standards at most ceviche stands - we like the Colima stands on Alvarado Street near Temple and Third streets just west of downtown - and go extremely well with beer. (We miss the great cevicheria called El Pulpo Loco, the Crazy Octopus, that used to be in the Pico-Union district.) Or you could go for the Greek version, like the fat, garlicky tentacles at Ulysses Voyage in the Grove, but the inexpensive grilled octopi at Papa Cristo's, attached to the C&K Market in the quaintly named Byzantine-Latino District, may be the most popular cephalopods in town.

    Featured in "Ask Mr. Gold: Top 10 Pico Boulevard Eats" by Jonathan Gold. Click 'More Info' to read all about it!

    make sure you order the octopodakia appetizer, it's amazing!

    If you're a tipper (which you should be and should always tip) bring cash. Credit card purchases don't allow you to tip! Sucks! :(

  • The Feast on 06/07/11

    Greek grocery, bakery and restaurant with spit-roasted gyros. Thursday nights at the taverna feature My Big Fat Greek Family-Style Dinner.

    Funny how the "first check-in" special unlocks $4.99 for a gyro but it's $4.99 every day!!
