Can you give us a few more details on the dish? Calamari (squid) is generally thought to be tender after a minute or two (depending on size) and then after a very long simmer. The in-between phase is the quite chewy one. If the dish was Thai I suspect it was very briefly cooked and if larger squid was used it was most likely scored.

The best thing to do is go back to the restaurant and ask them for the recipe. And then share it here.

You have not been the only person trying to determine this recipe. See the below link for other info including the "chef's verbal description on how to make the dish."

Now I want to try it.

Hope that works out.

Here is a different, but also brilliant recipe. I've made it many times and it has always been a huge success.

Did you try the recipe and was it similar to the one you had in the restaurant?

I believe that Busaba's menu was designed/consulted by David Thompson (of Thai Food fame) - so perhaps check his Street food books?
