red and black wasps in basket - vietnam


Live wasps on the market (Cao Bằng, Vietnam)

Insects are considered a delicacy in many asian countries.­ But I don't know how those are cooked or served.­

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.­
