It’s huge festival being held this month during my second visit to Prague in September last year. This month the weather is getting colder means the weather will be changing from summer to winter soon. It’s 13 degrees and I am so excited. The weather obviously so cold for me. I was ignored that cold feeling to enjoy this event.
I was also so surprised with some restaurant. They prepared unordinary food likely not as usual. The prices also shocking me out. It is more expensive than normal food. They explained to me why the price is more expensive than the other. They also explained to me how to eat them.
There are edible insects or bugs such as grasshopper and crickets also worms on the presentation. I’m too curious to see how they cooked and serve them. I can’t imagine these things sold here and it costs a lot of money to spend just for one insect.
In my home country in Indonesia, when I was a kid, I suddenly remembered when we played around rice field with friends ( it was no phone, no internet available at this time. It’s all about nature ) ah, if I’m talking about insects, grasshopper is everywhere and so easy to get them. I used to ate them as my parents said it’s good protein on these edible insects. It’s free food with huge protein and vitamins. It needs to cook properly otherwise you will feel itchy when you consume it. since the era changing and a lot of buildings raised, nature slowly gone by human needs.
Anyway, there are also worms to be prepared instead of insects on the plater. Oh, I really don’t have an idea with those worms. I usually give my birds these worms in my village. Of course, my birds love it so much. Neither me. My husband convinced me to eat them because they said it’s good for health. I would love to choose my own meal than the worms with salad and Greek yogurt which ready to consume this time. Ouch, I feel vomit just to see it. How could the worms such precious food when we have to spend a lot of money just for a little gram of worms. I can’t even finish them.
Okay, I confessed I try them for the first time. The taste quiet makes me feel curious. It tasted like well done fried chicken. There is unique taste when I tried to bite them in my mouth. When I tried to eat the grasshopper they said I need to remove the two of the legs which have thorns in it. These part could make itchy in your mouth while you are consuming.
It was great food travel while I was in Prague. It’s popular during a year and they held the event so often. There is an event depending on the season. It is worth to try the typical of Czech food during my visit.
