grasshopper bottle - vietnam


Grasshopper bottle (Vietnam)

This small rattan container is used to store grasshoppers gathered in the fields.­ Those are cooked as food.­ I ate all sorts of cooked insects, including large cicadas, and they are in fact quite tasty!

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.­
