We went there once, nice bugs but honestly not my big favourite. Price a bit expensive but compared to the street food here is clean and classy. You should come at least once during your time in Siem Reap.

I am freaked out by tarantulas and thinking about eating insects generally gives me the hibbie jibbies. That said, being in Siem Reap, I needed to overcome my fears and try it. Eating insects from street sellers may be the real deal but that didn't...More
