Fried Squid or Fried Calamari is popular in the cuisine of many Eastern or Western countries. Usually it's often served as an appetizer or snack in any Italian or Western restaurant. But in Chinese cuisine it's usually served as a main dish. Don't we all loves Fried Calamari ? I don't really care what style,cuisine or how Calamari is fried,as long as it's Fried Calamari,I love it !! How about you?
