    They eat chips and coconuts. Also takoyaki from the looks of the cans near the entrance to Octo Valley.

    I think Kelp Dome is a kelp growing plant, for them to...eat Kelp. The Squid Sisters talk about how they hate vegetables when talk about that map

    The café in the plaza has pictures of donuts and frappés displayed, so they definitely like sweet stuff.

    Well i know it would seem pretty canibalistic if the squids eat this, but i love dried squid and buy it whenever i'm visiting asia. Maybe the kids eat this to become better squids? :D

    Considering the fact that Inkopolis is based on Tokyo, it would make perfect sense for Inklings to eat sushi – including octopus sushi. And since DJ Octavio was originally going to be a sushi chef, it's likely that the Octarians would eat Inklings as well. Also, "farming salmon for eggs" sounds an awful lot like Salmon Run in Splatoon 2, so maybe the Inklings eat Salmonids, too. And of course they'd also eat crabs.

    The Inklings and Octolings are confirmed to be carnivorous.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure the Inklings evolved to be omnivores. Why else would they grow crops in places like Kelp Dome?

    In the Splatoon artbook, there's a page under Kelp Dome that talks about how Inklings have a passion for fruit and lists the different kinds of fruits they have.

    "Squid Leg Grape: (August - October) Firm and chewy like a gummy.

    Squid Fin Lemon: (Perennial) Fin-like part is bitter. The bigger the fins and the more symmetrical they are, the better. Said to be good luck to eat them. Perfect for a gift.

    Squid Orange: (June - November) The edible fruit is moderately tasty. Normally the skin is cut up and served with noodles.

    Squiddymelon: (June - August) Sweet and watery. An interesting fruit that changes color when you put ink on it. Shooting at a Squiddymelon while blindfolded is a popular summertime activity (mostly the least amount of shots it takes to break it open. You won't know what color is inside until you shoot it open).

    Squid Leaf/Squidage: Looks like squid when you pull it out [of the ground].

    ( Super late, but I found this thread when I needed this info for a fan fiction. ) In Splatoon 2, Pearl says something about her loving cake, but she also likes Octo Pie. ( Of course, Marina gets super offended. ) Which proves that Inklings in fact do eat Octarians and/or octolings.

    It's probably just an Octarian recipe, like how American cheese doesn't actually contain Americans. At least I hope it doesn't...

    My running theory is that there's still unevolved Squid and Octopi around alongside the Inklings and Octarians. That would explain the Japanese sushi splatfest, at least. The bigger question is what they make Burgers and Hot Dogs out of.

    Manatee beef? My headcanon is that the manatees also migrated onto land but never developed sapience like other species. Eventually, they became more "cow" than "sea", developing a flesh that the Inklings and Octarians found extremely delicious when cooked.

    Yeah, that would make sense. Manatees are literally called Sea Cows. They're mammals, so I can see the Squid and Octopi making beef related foods from them. Maybe they even have some sort of sauce for the meat close to barbecue sauce?

    If Octarians are grown from cut Octoling tentacles, I would assume that this is where they get Squid/Octo meat from. Yes, it's like eating your hair, if your hair was delicious.

    Maybe they fry and eat their hair after they get a haircut...? It's weird, though...:p

    Surprised no one brought up the Splatoon manga yet. Right in the first volume there's a running gag about eating curry rice on the field. so Inkling must eat a good amount of curry. An average Japanese family eats it 5 times a month.

    Could it also be possibly that regular, unevolved sea creatures exist at the Inklings' disposal?

    I honestly think that it could be a mixture of both, but i'm not really sure
