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!

Exotic Cambodian Food

Exotic Cambodian Street Food

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.
