So, last night I discovered Wahaca on South Bank is trialling fried Grasshoppers. I kind of had to, really.|
I got a chunky salsa, all heads and legs chopped up with melted cheese on top, nachos on the side and a few whole insects as garnish. It was alright, nutty and sweet and entirely palatable but I suspect a lot of the taste I was experiencing (and the cheese) was an attempt to mask the actual flavour / texture with additional ingredients.
Can anyone tell me of their insect experiences, and what they are actually like?
LB, you really are a massive geek.
