tako (octopus) sashimi with roasted beet, potato salad

my version -- tako sashimi dressed with soy, chili, and chives; roasted potatoes and beets served over wasabi mayo quinoa, finished with thai basil and jalapeño...

"Tako is another typical item in Japanese cuisine; the tentacles are often thinly sliced and served as sashimi. Tako may be eaten raw, but is also commonly poached first which gives the flesh a sweeter flavor and firmer texture." -- Japan Guide
Tako accompanied with quail egg over soba...

"Quail eggs are considered a delicacy in many parts of the world, including Asia, Europe, and North America. In Japanese cuisine, they are sometimes used raw or cooked as tamago in sushi and often found in bento lunches. In some other countries, quail eggs are considered less exotic." -- Wikipedia
