The dish for the bravest of the foodies — and a great snack for a glass of beer, surprisingly. Besides, this exotic food is rich in protein and calcium.
How to try the roasted crickets in Phuket
For Thai, who look at anything that moves as a potential dinner, roasted crickets are not exotic at all, same as fried silkworms. Rather, they are an inexpensive, tasty and rich in protein and calcium snack that goes nicely with a glass of beer.

The widest range of such delicatessen can be found at the night farmer’s markets, but buying and eating the first bugs you find is a risk — you should first learn the proper way of eating them. For example, the crickets are eaten without the head or feet to avoid choking, and the gourmet kind are the fatter insects, not the small crickets, but bigger locusts which, apparently, melt like butter on your tongue.
