What's special about today is that Naldo gave me grasshoppers to eat. It's both our first time to eat fried grasshoppers. I'm surprised I didn't hesitate. Well, I probably would have hesitated if someone else offered it to me.
Anyway, this delicacy is called Chapulin al Ajo . A colleague brought it from Mexico.
So how did it taste like? The chapulines were garlic-flavored so that's what. Someone told me before that it tasted like chicken but now that I have eaten it myself, to me it doesn't taste like chicken at all. It tasted like how I imagined insects would taste like. It was crunchy so it' was easy to chew and swallow. I don't think I'll take it so well if it was gummy or slimy.
Did we like it? It's not bad but at the same time it's not something we'd crave for.
After this, I won't be so afraid to try the ones in Thailand. I heard they serve scorpions there.
That's all for now. Stay happy!
