Exotic Food Not for the Faint-Hearted
I like spices occasionally on my food. I love trying out new cuisine. But I guess I just met the limit to my food adventurism. I think this is the height of exotic-ness, lol! A few nights ago, we roamed around the streets of Phnom Penh, looking out for something unique to try out. I love street foods! They are just so tasty and trying out what the locals feast on is one big adventure for me. My attention though was caught by this… tada!
A smorgasbord of fried insects.Fried frogs, assorted crickets, baby snakes, spiders… I did not taste any, I swear I wanted to but I was having goosebumps just by looking at them. My “fearless”daughter was begging to try a fried baby snake!
I don’t think I have the stomach for too exotic food but judging from the amount they are selling, people here must like it a lot. Interesting, isn’t it.. Discovering new things about Cambodia, their culture and traditions, lifestyle, food etc..Well, I’m having a blast and its making living here worthwile.
