    According to a recent U.N. report, insects could be a solution to some of the world's food and health problems. They're nutritious, eco-friendly and abundant. Many countries already consider them a staple part of their diets.

    So if we're all to start consuming locusts and scorpions, we can start in Southeast Asia for guidance.
    They're a common sight in Bangkok.

    Come nightfall, at any given outdoor market or busy road there will usually be at least one vendor with a pushcart loaded up with insect snacks, making many tourists squirm and others lick their lips.
    Maybe you're in the mood for some fried crickets. Or perhaps it's the pile of bamboo worms that has you salivating. These bug vendors serve up to a dozen varieties of insects, which are usually fried in vegetable oil then sprayed with soy sauce to add some zing.

    Crunchy yes and without sauce... but actually the taste is not that special... most of it is fried or grilled as hell anyway :D
