Ice cream spiders in Phnom Penh

One of the joys of living and visiting other countries is the food. Cambodia has presented its far share of the weird and wonderful.

We couldn’t come at even touching this deep fried tarantula and insect tempura… but the coconut ice creams were divine.

The creepy crawlers were at a very popular high end restaurant and cost about $6 a serve. The dessert was at the local night market and cost about 25c a scoop!

    1. No didn’t taste like chicken and yes people sampled it but not us!


  3. Yes, the tarantula, silkworms, locusts , frogs, and even rats. The latter stopped me. Still, the Cambodians are delightful people.
