The Ultimate Snack!
So, this is me trying bondegi. Bondegi is a "snack" you sometimes get given at restaurants. You can purchase these at various street stalls/markets.
Bondegi is basically silk worm pupae. So, a cocoon. Here is a close up:
I must admit, I was so scared to try it. It made the whole experience worse! The outside was slightly crunchy but also soft as if biting into a boiled beetle (not that I know what that tastes like either). Then all these juices start oozing out as you bite into it.
I can't really comment on taste. I was more psyched up about the fact it was an insect to notice the taste. I think what creeped me out the most was that it looked like a wasp..or Kakuna from Pokemon.
Have you tried it?! ^0^!
