How does one eat a beetle?

If you managed to eat grasshopper then what's the difference? I thought it was the whole 'eating an insect' idea that turned people off these kinds of dishes.

Hey, I meant literally, how do you eat it!??!

Like, do you break open the shell....or just crunch the whole thing up.....?

Clarabell,
Concerning the snails and mussels there are really tasty. Especially if you like garlic and parsil.

I love mussels but they're so expensive. Had some last night in a posh restaurant.

I haven't had snails in the French style, but I've had them in hot Noodle soup in Vietnam. They were a bit chewy and rubbery. Probably overcooked. But the soup was gorgeous, hot and spicy with loads of fresh herbs.

Canadian people: Whats that thing you do with the cheese and gravy on your fries. Goes all soggy bu loads of canadian people I met loved it I can't remember the name.

And when I was at Uni someone introduced me to salad cream on toast! I recommend it!

deep fried tarantula in cambodia. fucking rancid cos the juices pop from the abdomen right down your throat!!! nasty.

i agree with the burger issues people have. it never looks like the picture haha. but to be fair you probably wont end up with food poisoning. i once ate a burger in tunisia that really made me pay... try four days of delirious, hallucinatory diarrhoea in a hotel room whilst the outside temperature is 100 degrees! sweet.

joey :)

I'm ashamed of this!!

I went out in Phnom Penh on an empty stomach with a bunch of Irish people (blame them, ever the bad influence!) and I got totally plastered. Had a fantastic night though. However the next day when I woke feeling shit and tried to piece together the night before... I was sure I remembered some kind of late-night burger being involved.

I told myself I'd never be so stupid, and that it must have been a dream from back home....Until the diahorreah started....

Fortunalty I wasn't nearly as ill as Joey in Tunisia, but stomach wasn't right for ages. And to this day I don't know what it was I ate? Or if it really happened!!!!

I eat all kinds of rubbish here at home from burger vans when I'm drunk. Who knows what goes in?

I don't know if the rest of Canada serves it, but in Quebec it's called poutine. It's home-cut fries topped with curd (aka 'squeaky') cheese and gravy. Some places serve different sorts, such as Italian poutine, which is topped with spaghetti sauce. It's good, but packed with calories.

I believe Evan P. took a liking to it when he visited Montreal!

When you say squeaky cheese do you mean Halloumi? That stuff is the bollocks - amazing cheese! Chips, cheese and coleslaw is he done thing round these parts. Yum. I have eaten soup and cheese derived from stinging nettles and beef from a cow that we reared ourselves. It was quite an emotional experience for my brother who was quite young at the time and wasn't too chuffed when my dad told him he was tucking into Gemma.
