Some really different food in the streets of Bangkok

in travelfeed •  2 months ago 

Do you like to try this?

While traveling in Asia you see they all around.

I talk about this big bugs, some funny and ugly looking creatures and all this - for Europeans - different looking little animals.

Ok, I don't go to MacDonalds or Burger King but this food creates at least a similar picture to my traveller brain.

Fried Grasshoppers

Ok, not really my style to eat but they really took me into picture mode.

As you see,the fried grasshoppers
come as well with some green stuff,
so it must be healthy!


Nice on picture but not my lunch


Do you see the other delicious creatures?

Some fried maggots

Yuck - as well not really my style but as you see on that nice green decoration. Seem to be damn healthy stuff.

Eating Insects in Bangkok and Where to Find Them  

Have a look to this post from [Bangkok dot com](http://www.bangkok.com/magazine/eating-insects.htm) to find some more places

Eating some different kind of fried insects appears on the priority list of many travelers. 

Yes, you should try this at least once to take a photo of you and that kind of food to show your friends and family at home


 Going to China Town for food

On many normal travels, we mainly go into china town to buy some stuff to take home or to look at nice temples. But this time we went to the

The entrance to the China Town area in Bangkok

The old market area

This is really worth a short trip and maybe a 2 or 3 hour walk into all that narrow streets. Here you get a lot different smells and you see the people buying "funny" things while rushing through all that places.

The horn of a scooter will keep you awake, as they drive all over this place to carry some stuff around.


Walking the streets of the market


Yummy fried scorpions or so....

The typical offerings includes grasshoppers, bamboo worms, silk larvae, crickets, weevils, ant queens and scorpions.


Somebody has to prepare all the ducks


Sign for some more special food


Some days, I'm such a veggie eater

You might know that I love to do BBQ in any styles and any size, but after all this Scorpions, grasshoppers and silk larvae I had something different to eat in my mind.

Nice street food with many locals

And there is always somewhere a temple


Luckily - I found a spiritual friend

Form all that walking and all the pictures and all that dust in the street - believe me - you get thirsty. Or let's say damn thirsty.

Than I saw this very clear message!And I know what I had to do.

Enjoy a cold beer while chilling for some minutes.

I hope you get the right food when you travel to Bangkok on your next trip. Let me know how the fried insects taste, as I prefer to have a beer and a soup.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Never mind the insects, how's the beer there?

Hmmm, light - if you ask a Belgian beer lover.

But still fair drinkable

zu gern wäre ich da jetzt auch ... Interessante leckereien was ich da so sehe.... ich würde da aus dem Testen gar nimmer raus kommen.

Das sind meine Bilder von meiner Reise aus diesem Sommer.

Damit möchte ich all den Steemians das SteemFest 4 noch etwas „schmackhafter“ zu machen.

can't wait) yum)

Espero visitar ese lugar!

Love those bugsss though can't stand it for more than a few full spoon. Good amount would be just lovely!

We need to talk about this as I‘m more a „chicken cashew nut“ and any good „padthai“ lover.

After so many travels in Thailand I started to judge a restaurant on their quality of doing this kind of dish.

Every country have own culture. Grasshopper item first time i seen .Anyway thanks for share your travel story.

Regards esteemed friend @detlev.

Oh, my God! There were scorpions there?
I would not particularly eat that worms. But I would eat the grasshoppers.

At least you weren't in the Chinese city of Yulin during the summer solstice when its controversial dog meat festival is celebrated.

Best of all, there was beer. Well, I think the only place in the world where you wouldn't get beer would be in the Antarctic.

Your friend, Juan

Hmm Antartic, not sure about it. Would be a damn cold beer

LOL oh yeah! a damn cold Beer.

Very very interesting. I'd like to try the fried maggot. I bet they taste like fried chicken, IMHO.
