Alternative Thai Food: Eating Bugs!

Eating gross food - in this case, Giant Cockroaches in Thailand. Videos at YouTube channel.Thai food is probably the most amazing food on the planet. I haven’t tried them all yet – but it’s gotta rank up there with the best of them. I’ve been eating it for almost 5 years now and Joy – a lifetime. She looks happy enough!

I (Vern) have acquired a penchant for eating things out of the ordinary since arriving in Thailand. There are some weird foodstuffs out here for the adventurous. Sometimes I can be really curious…

It started with some large red ant eggs in my soup on a visit to Sisaket, and has expanded to include eating all sorts of Thai food oddities:

  • crickets
  • grasshoppers
  • silk worms
  • bamboo worms
  • hellgrammites
  • giant Chinese Cockroaches
  • water bugs
  • beetles
  • scorpion
  • durian
