Yeah, had a bag of mixed bugs many a time, nice with a beer and goes down well with the girls when you get a nice selection for the bar.

Ya they are pretty tasty like most things deep fried in oil, ate all kinds of frogs and bugs from the carts and never got sick. Don't eat them much these days though the GF and I got tired of them I guess.

They all taste fine although the cockroaches/large beetles were a little to meaty for my liking. The Grasshoppers are great with a beer , but my favourites are ants which are fried up with lemongrass and chilli...never been ill from eating them

 

 

If it floats, flies or fucks It's probably cheaper to rent ...

Ive tried the grasshoppers, tasted like hay... Quite boring really. Tried the larva thingies, not too bad actually but I'd rather buy peanuts. Tried a black, boiled waterbeetle thingy, not too good. Very strange taste from that one and nothing I would try again.

I had one of those big Waterbug looking things. Not much taste other than salty. The texture was a little strange though. lol

 

We go frog gigging where I live so thats no big deal. Taste like chicken It's fun to peel their pants off and throw them in some hot salted oil then watch them jump around. :GoldenSmile1:

The best of them all are the grasshoppers, they are really good with a cold beer.

 

Better than chips or peanuts I reckon.

 

Tried the rest but just don't like them, some are really bad, really.

I've tried em but they so damn greasy and I suspect they fried in the shittiest old used-up oil sold out the back doors of Tesco or Big C.

 

I don't mind the mangdaer flavour when it's used in a chilly dip (nam prik mangdaer)

 

Down South (HatYai) you get the snake shops - snake blood, snake meat, snake organs, Chinks from S'Pore & KL eat the snake's penis, gives em big sex urges.

Duno about off the Street Mate 5555 but from food carts yes

 

I think in over 30 yrs eaten and tried all Thailand has to offer some good some plain feckin horrid

 

It is normally a girl that offer or buys it and in my drunken state I taste or eat it

 

If you see somebody eating something ask to try it they won't refuse you

 

Another reason when back in your room to get them to wash that black nasty shit out of their teeth not a pretty site 5555

I always see them carts in soi Chaiyaphum, selling the fried bugs and bees and grasshoppers, but I keep going down the soi to the Subway and have a nice tuna and cheese roll.

On my 2nd trip to Patts, I woke up drunk in the middle of the night feeling sick so I ran to the toilet to throw up...

When I looked in the toilet, I noticed all kinds of bug legs and bodies floating in the water...

I freaked out because I was so pissed that I did not remember anything that happened that night......

I thought that I had some kind of stomach infestation!!

Eventually I figured it out :GoldenSmile1:

We're not here for a long time

Just a good time !

Had the bugs two trips back and got food poisioning, was laid up for 3 days. Not nice. I had them before with no problem and think that they may have not been cooked enough. Anyway, will not try again.

I tried a Grasshopper in The Lovely Bar at the bottom of Soi 7 one night, it's wings got stuck up around my top gums and was hard to swallow...never again, well not when sober at least.

Those one of the things i will never be able to do. It's a psychological matter for me, just thinking of putting this insect in my mouth can make me puke. I know that for some asian people those bugs are snacks like Pringles for us so i guess the culture differences are a big factor too. Bahhh those pictures reminds me Fear Factor...
