Fried Crickets in Cambodia


Fancy a snack in Cambodia? Look no further than fried crickets, extremely popular as a snack on bus journies. I remember after one bus trip the floor was covered with crunchy cricket remains. I tried some whilst at Angkor Wat, they really are discusting, bitter and greasy. Urgh, makes feel sick just thinking about them!
