Grillos, Chapulinas, however you fry them, no matter how much chili you sprinkle on them, they are still crickets. Or grasshoppers. A delicacy I have yet the guts to try.

They just drop them in oil, live, I was told. Oh. I guess it’s like lobster. But they hop. And, they’re bugs. I will try anything. But this one I had to pass on.

A delicacy in Mexico, and especially on the streets of Oaxaca. You’ll see thousands of fried grasshoppers in chili and lime, being sold in the market every day, fresh. Maybe next trip (and that’s a big maybe).
