    squid ink... hard time finding it...

    Yes, can order it online and pay the shipping which really marks it up.

    I did a English to Korean translation: 오징어 잉크 - Figuring we might be able to find an asian market close by with it.

    We've tried a number of shops in the area with no success yet. Even one of the largest asian markets in the area, only to be told no.

    Any insight?

    TIA

    For small quantity, you can always buy fresh cuttlefish and/or squid/calamari and extract the ink pouch

    The rest will be part of your sashimi/sushi platter.

    Locate a commercial fish distributor/purveyor and they should carry it.

    Took the easy way out given no luck here. "we can order that for you, it'll be here in a week". Heck I can do that too.

    So I did. Found it online and spoke to someone that says it has a four year shelf life and/or can be frozen.

    Came in a 1# bottle and smaller ones, but given the shipping, I went with the $31 1# jar.

    I just found this. I was reminded of this post and giggled. It looks like a death burger, but I'm very curious as to how this would taste. :3
