Many of us think that the most terrible that will offer them the menu foreign restaurants, it’s snails or frog legs. And not want to taste fried tarantulas, poisonous fish fillets or stewed bats? Well, or a dessert from the brain of a monkey? No? And scholars, incidentally, claim that it tastes reminiscent of a delicate rice pudding…
Under the knife of chef in different parts of the world’s most incredible animals. In the ranking of gourmet-ekstremalov lead, undoubtedly, Asians. For the European list of obscure names in a foreign language offered at restaurants in Cambodia or Vietnam, is akin to Russian roulette. So I think then that it makes cracking sounds so appetizing on your teeth.
Cambodia: tarantulas. If you find yourself in the town of Skuon near the capital of Cambodia don’t faint when you stuck to sellers with trays and trays piled still alive, moving or already roasted “dish”.
