Bugs Cafe @ Siem Reap, Cambodia

November 15, 2017

Confront your creepy-crawly fears at Bugs Cafe, where the menu consists entirely of six-and-eight-legged creatures. Start with the skewers of spiders, scorpions, grasshoppers and giant water bugs, each distinctively crunchy, nearly all an acquired taste with their earthy flavours. 

Complement the meal with spring rolls stuffed with red ants, sweet potato soup with bee eggs, wok-fried silkworms and crickets with Kampot green peppers, and tempura tarantulas with mango chutney, downed with scorpion-fused liquor and a potent cocktail called Cambodian Fever.
