What was sold in this vast Khlong Toei Market was not only meat and vegetables. Walking around the messy market, I came to a shop selling marine products. The city of Bangkok doesn't face the ocean. Yet various kinds of seafood were displayed here.

It is easy to visualize that many shrimps are used in Thai cuisines. In most cases, shrimps are put into the soup called Tom Yum. But it is not easy to visualize that squid and octopus are used in Thai dishes. However, I have just never eaten those kinds of dishes.

Anyway, many squid and octopus were set out in this shop. And they seemed to be ocean fresh. Because of Thai cuisine, they could be sauteed. From a Japanese standpoint, I thought I wanted to eat them raw as Sashimi. Yet grated wasabi was not sold here, unfortunately.
