  A Bug's Life...a bug 1 day, a dish another day..
by bpacker

Ok, Ok , this should be in my restaurant guide but off the beaten path means something that is unconventional right?

Well, eating deep-fried scorpions, ants and water bugs is not something you'd expect in urban Singapore but somewhere in the FEAR FACTOR studios in Hollywood right?Well, there are no prizes for eating these delicacies because some locals believe that your health will improve when you indulge in this gory delight. If you want to have a go at it, pop down to the Imperial Garden Restaurant ( next to Raffles Hotel ) or any of the Thai eateries at Golden Mile Shopping Centre at Beach Road ( water bugs). I bet you'll have an experience you'll never forget..

The Imperial Garden Restaurant is at 3rd Floor, Metropole Hotel 41, Seah Street, Singapore 188396
