We have always enjoyed the photos from the blog because they keep us connected to a place and activities we love so much, Your recipes, however, stimulate other senses beyond the visual. Can’t wait to taste one of my all time favorite lunches–your calamari–hopefully next July.

I must admit these types of dishes make me want to reconsider vegetarianism.

Anna Ridgewell

Ha! Yes, this is definitely one of those dishes! Hope you are well

This looks amazing and I can see why it’s so popular. Funny when I think about it, that a calamari dish has twice featured prominently in my memories of a place. Fried baby squid in Syros, Greece were incredibly tender and a grilled whole squid dish in Galicia, Spain was the best I’ve ever had. Would love to try at Londolozi!

Thank you Kimberly! yes, very popular in the Med, and you will enjoy ours as well! Hope you’re well. x

I love calamari, in the north of Spain they also taste awsome, they call them Rabas and take the very small octopus to prepare them.
