In a country where not even ants, crickets, grasshoppers, bee larvae, beetles, scorpions, tarantulas, frogs, dogs, cats, bats, or rats are spared, the question that one must ask is: “What don’t Cambodians eat?”
Below are some 'snack food' samples from the Siem Reap area… abundant particularly during the rainy season, when grasshoppers, crickets, beetles,
and bugs are collected at light traps, then taken by bag, basket, or bucket to local markets, and sold--normally raw, or deep-fried-and-ready-to-eat,
with a garnish of spring onions, garlic, chillies, and seasoning salt.
Bee brood is included in the mix.
