If you know the genus of those insect larvaes, please post a comment!
Extracting the worm from its cocoon (Vietnam)
Nhộng Tằm worms are a delicacy in some parts of Vietnam, but I didn't get a change to try that for diner.
Those are not Silkworms (Lepidoptera), but they produce a similar cocoon that is harvested by the tribe people in Northern Vietnam.
Photos of edible insects, alive, raw and cooked, found on markets all around Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos).
I tried most of them, and they are good indeed. Rosted crickets (my favorite) taste a bit like chocolate.
Photos from of my 30-day trip around Vietnam in November 2005.
