Fried crickets are awesome. Got hooked on em in the Philippine market in Honolulu. Add butter, taste like popcorn

Wife and I ate fried crickets in Progresso Mexico in January of this year. They were actually pretty tasty. The street vendor put some mexican spice on them before eating them.

It was probably the Mexican spice that tasted good. I couldn't say about the crickets. If I get to starving, ...

Here, but occasionally There.
Studies say that if you're over the age of 36, you're very unlikely to be an adventurous eater. Don't be a statistic. Go to the taco truck, order the beef tongue, ceviche, pokė, etc... odds are, the more weird it sounds, the better it tastes.

But you can skip the menudo... That's just nasty.

I'm twice over the 36 number and a bit more. In my case, those studies are correct. In my time in the Army, I was stationed in Pakistan and NEVER tried the local food. (I wouldn't call it cuisine, either. No telling where some of that food came from.)

I'm the storied "meat and potatoes" man. I just let the meats vary between the three main meat groups.

During my 5 years and 8 months in Vietnam, and while completely sober, I ate home / farm raised stir fried water bugs (Lethocerus Indicus) a couple of times while in Vietnam......not bad at all if seasoned good and cooked well done so that the insides aren't still real squishy.

Knowing some of you fellas just had breakfast and would like to keep it down I won't go into some of the other things I ate while there. :)

Yeah, like Nuoc Mam. The murkier the better.
