    Yeah, I have in South East Asia, specifically Thailand. They are not too bad. Not sure I could convince DW to go down that path though.

    Also eaten Spiders in Cambodia (crab like, lovely marinade used!), Silk worms larvae in South Korea (like eating mouthfulls of dust!) and dog in Vietnam (not an insect I know, but interesting!).

    Might be a way of the way of the future though… a cheap protein hit!

    Here’s my partner discussing with an insect vendor in Thailand about what to eat, she settled on a platter of a variety of delectable insect morsels

    and here she is chowing down on a grasshopper

    I never tried them nor did we try these

    in Cambodia

    Great photos and brave lady. I guess it is also a matter of culture and what you are used to. I knew a french chef once that used to fry up xmass beetles in butter and add a caramel sauce. I had a try and they were really nice, quite nutty, that is once I got past the initial terror of putting it in my mouth. :laugh:

    Trandto you partner is very brave!! I like the idea, for controlling pests like locusts and grasshoppers, but not sure that i could actually put them in my mouth 🙁
