Cambodia Chronicles Two: Fried Insects

Sunday, December 27, 2009

It was such a delight when at a bus stop on our way to Siem Reap we saw some fried insects being sold along with eggs and a variety of fresh fruits .

Here's what looks like crickets

And spiders

And beetles

and insect larvae.

Don't they look delicious?

i tried the spiders. they taste like chicken but a bit sweeter. and you got to take off the abdomen. yum yum. :)

the abdomen is the best part. that is where the undigested mosquitoes are. the blood full abdomen of the mosquitoes is what make it sweeter than chicken. :)

Angeli said...

the beEtles were more delicious. too bad you didn't try them. :)
