Eating giant water bugs, a popular Thai food here in Thailand. Bugs and insects are actually quite tasty and I eat insects as food on a semi-regular basis now. Insect eating is very popular amongst Thai people and bugs are apparently quite healthy, low in fat, and a good source of protein. If you travel in Thailand on holidays I’d definitely recommend giving them a try! You’ll find them at nearly all markets and in some Thai restaurants, amongst the hundreds of Thai dishes that are available. In this video I taste test the giant water scorpions, known as “maeng da” in Thai, and I can tell you that it is delicious! Giant water bugs, one of the many bizarre Thai foods you can find in Thailand!
