Waiter, Where’s the Fly in My Soup?

Have a taste for the unusual? Why not try a new cafe that serves up insects!

Siem Reap, Cambodia now features a cafe specializing in ‘Insect Tapas’. Bugs Café, run and co-owned by Marjolaine Blouzard, former operations manager of the Casa Angkor Hotel, features a wide variety of insect dishes. The cafe itself has a friendly atmosphere and the creepy crawly fare is prepared in both a traditional way as well as with a modern twist, all with a gourmet presentation.

Every Globetrotter has to try the feta and tarantula samosa or Mediterranean feuilletes with ants… or just pick a grub out of the display. If the green papaya salad garnished with whole scorpions marinated in honey, ginger and lime juice is too scary to eat, then try a savory cupcake or Danish pastry with these critters included in the ingredient list.

To complete the experience, grab a cocktail or shake to wash down this fun and adventurous snack.
