Time for Grub
I've finally done it! Eaten a grub!
For all my platetrotting adventures, I had tried and failed on more than one occasion to eat anything insect-related.
That was until visiting Mexico City last month where I was pleased to finally find what looked like edible and even enticing-looking insect products on the menu. Like exotic-sounding escamoles, also known as Mexican Caviar, and grasshoppers crusted over fish - two insects in one trip! Hey, I had to make up for all those years not spent eating spiders and witchety grubs!
But there was so much more to enjoy in Mexico then ant larvae and crunchy critters - I don't think I managed to scratch the surface of this amazing country and its even more amazing variety of food, art and stunning architecture. I can't wait for another chance to visit Mexico and taste my way through another long list of delicious and unusual treats.
What's the most exotic food you have ever eaten and where?
Stay tuned for more on my Mexican platetrotting adventures but until then, here are some other of my favorite places to plate trot in.
