"Eating Deep Fried Insects, Anyone?" Chatuchak Weekend Market Tip by Rinjani
Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok: 9 reviews and 7 photos
On our walk from Chattucak market to the nearest BTS, we passed by the street vendor selling funny looking foods. Looking closer, there are different kind of insects; worms, larvas, crickets (or grasshoppers) and pretty big insect looks like cockroaches.
These insects are deep fried to brown. This unique stall attracts tourists to snap pictures and the seller seems not so happy about it. The seller can’t speak English, so we could not inquire him farther about those insects.
We braved ourselves to buy deep fried brown cockroaches for 20 THB each. The seller put pepper and oil into it and handed over to us. A tiny bite of its crispy wing tastes like chip, a bite of its skull, it tastes spicy and dash of bitter.
