“Here’s your order sir! A grasshopper spring roll together with our value meal, a plate of worms. Bon appétit!” Just imagine going to a restaurant and you’ll see a table filled with different servings of exotic food. There’s a plate of pasta with toasted scorpions and wiggly silkworms on top or a large size pizza with a certain six-legged insect on it or better yet one serving of chocolate bar with worm fillings or some delicious cupcakes sprinkled with silkworms!
Okay, okay. Sometimes my imagination gets the better of me. But there are some dudes who actually have the liking and the taste for these exotic delicacies. But would you dare?
If you are not so sure if these crawling and flying bugs are indeed edible, here’s a bit of a trivia for you. Leggo?
Did you know that in Thailand, eating exotic dishes of these sorts are nothing but the usual? Yes and it was the reason why the Thailand became known as the “Insect-eating capital of the world.” Every exotic insect from worms, scorpions and bugs, they got it!
From whims of eating them fried, baked and even with a saucy sauce, you’ll find it in the heart of the country, Bangkok. No wonder a lot of exotic food lovers often go there to enjoy a bite of tasty and nasty cuisines!
Meanwhile in China, Dutch scientists in the University of Wangeningen, see these insects as a shining shimmering savior of the world in a future of hunger and he is currently developing a community of fast food chains and restaurants serving multiplexed cuisines. (Wheeeeee… so freaky…luscious… LOL…)
So come on and let’s fly to Thailand!!!
