More About This Experience
Gear yourself up for the Phnom Penh Fear Factor challenge! What's fear factor for us is everyday fare for the locals in Cambodia. Deep fried with spices, garlic, herbs and garnished with lime, chilli and many other ingredients, this is one delicacy Cambodians love to have with their national beer. It's not as simple as just throwing everything into the boiling oil and fry until crisp. The marinating, preparation, selection of fresh grub takes skill and experience, and you get to learn it from one of the local masters in town!
The practice of eating insects came about during the Khmer rouge regime where many had to eat insects to survive due to the severe starvation. After the war, necessity turned into tradition and people continued cooking it as local fare!
You can choose the insects that you want to devour, with juicy water beetles, springy crickets, crunchy grasshoppers, melt-in-your-mouth worms and mini frogs on the menu. Be brave, complete the challenge and you can not only tell people you ate these but also prepared, marinated and cooked them!You won't be the first, even foreigners have converted to insect-eaters. If you're up for the baby egg, simply let us know and we'll hatch one for you :)
