What you call squid
once they're served as a food
Usually served either fried and breaded, and looking like onion rings.
Also available raw, feels like chewing on rubber bands because of their rubberiness. They come in a thick circle, not unlike rubber bands on lobster's claws.
You might find calimari in a Seafood Salad. Easy to spot, along with some calimari tentacles. Although they look sorta gross and your squeamish date may cringe, it tastes quite good with some oil.
The tentacles are a very good part too, althought they're sorta short usually. They are the regular tentacles, with suckers on one side and some cool blue stripes or whatever.
