Nakji bokkeum ( 낙지볶음) is a sweet and spicy octopus stir fry dish, considered a classic Korean favourite and is often served with buckwheat noodles or rice. Octopus is a low-calorie food so it is believed to be good for stamina. In Korea, nakji bokkeum is served spicy so people usually eat shellfish soup with it to reduce the sensation of hotness.
