T is for Tako

You get off the plane and immediately feel like eating some tacos. Right? Okay, but be careful because the word taco in Hawaiian is spelled Tako and is actually the word for octopus. Seriously. So, unless you love calamari, you might want to wait with the Mexican food.

You can thank me by reading Penniless Hearts or if you've already read it, then maybe you can tell one of your friends about how much fun you had reading it! Reading Penniless Hearts is like a first class trip to Hawaii without squiggly surprises on the menu.


  1. I do like calamari! Not in my tacos though...

  2. I make it a rule to never eat anything that can eat me. No calamari, no tako!

  3. I would definitely have to pass on eating octopus!

  4. I'm not a huge fan of octopus. The last time I took the kids to the sushi train there were whole baby octopuses on one plate and my youngest decided they looked good. I couldn't watch....

  5. One of my favorites !
    I dare anyone to eat takoyaki and not like it. Small round balls of dough with a small piece of tako in it. Best street food ever.

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Hey Eve,

    Seriously? It's Octopus? You've got to be squiding....

    Gary, at gone four in the morning and it shows....

  7. Ooh. I wonder how many do get it wrong. And Penniless Hearts was an excellent read.
