Sampling Cambodian Delicacy at Siem Reap Night MarketWARNING!! DON'T READ IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH
It might take you a while to figure it out what are on the tray. But when you look closer, you then realize they are 8 legged creatures.
AND THEY ARE WAITING FOR YOU TO TASTE!!!
These tarantulas are about the size of my fist. They are seasoned , I can taste garlic, sugar, may be soy sauce, and fried in oil.
If you dare to touch it, you would feel that the outside of belly and the legs are crispy and you just break each leg off and eat it. There are a little bit of meat in the leg.
Now the belly part, after chomping pass the crunchiness of the exterior, the inside is unexpectedly soft, like feta cheese filling. I was expecting something gross but it turns out it was not that bad.
For USD $1.00 a piece, it's not a bad snack after all. The other good thing is, you can share it with 8 people. HAHA!!
While you're there, try the snake too.
