What is it?

Walking on the west side of Spadina Ave. between Nassau St. and Dundas St. the other day, I saw what I think was a Bar-B-Que object hanging in the window of an Oriental butcher shop (I guess you would call it a butcher shop). Chinese? Korean? Vietnamese? It was bright orange in colour, round,flattened,disc-like, about 10 inches in diameter with several thin yellow-orange strands about 6 inches long hanging down. This object was hanging among Bar-b-que ducks and chunks of Bar-b-Que pork. At first glance I thought it was some type of octopus. I was reluctant to enter the store to ask the butcher what it was because I had no intention of purchasing it. It looked creepy. Does anyone know what this thing is called, and what it tastes like? Thank you.
