The vendor slices a large piece of squid on a stick and sears it with sauce on a flat top griddle. After sprinkling it with spices, the squid is sliced into smaller, bite sized squares and served inside a styrofoam box with toothpicks for easy sharing.

I have frequented this stand once, and have not yet tried other squid stands. This stand in particular served a tasty portion of squid that was well-seasoned and cooked perfectly tender.
