I have never tasted this soft crab, but it looked so delicious that I was ready to buy it, eventhough I had no place to go and cook it. I tried to find it in the restaurants or trattorias without success.
I would not like to attempt to trranslate “moscardino” into english, lets just say it is a small octopus like polipus.
The buyers in Venice know their stuff and they cannot be fooled. This in my view is one of the basic reasons that the quality of the products on offer is so high.
The building that houses the market has beautiful arches that are fully “clothed” and create a more fresh atmosphere inside.
I cought this sellet at a moment of rest, while she was munching some fruit.
