I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to eating different foods around the world. When I went to Thailand, I knew bugs would be on the menu, and I couldn’t wait to try them.
My first night in Chiang Mai, my roommate and I were walking through town when I saw a woman pushing a cart full of cooked bugs.
As I was making my way to her cart, I passed a couple talking about eating bugs as well. The woman thought it was disgusting. The man really wanted to do it. I struck up a conversation with them and made a pact with the man to eat a fried grasshopper.
To be honest, it was quite nice. The oil the woman had used was recycled a few too many times, but the bug itself was really good. It was like an extra crispy piece of chicken.
When I go back to Thailand, I’ll for sure be ordering more bugs.
