Cambodian Fried Spiders? (with 2 polls)

Fried tarantulas are a delicacy in Cambodia. For 8 cents a spider, you can eat your very own. But watch out for funky spider breath (they cook it with garlic)! (Source:¬†Woman’s Day).

If you aren’t into spiders, you might prefer Amok - a cooking method common in Cambodia, specifically food steamed in banana leaves. Mmm, now that sounds more like it! :)


Feel like taking a quiz all about Cambodia? National Geographic has one! Have fun! :)

    I might eat a chocolate covered ant – you know: 1. stick in mouth, 2. do not chew, 3. swallow. I do not think that anything could persuade me to eat a fried tarantula off that plate in the photo!

    I checked off ant, but only because one crawled onto my strawberry during a picnic- very salty. I can also add fruit fly and possibly mosquito for the same reasons (not intentially).
