I am talking about crickets, scorpions, silkworms, crocodile meat, dried lizard, etc. etc. etc. I am not putting this on this list for its taste (though some will find it good; but all I taste is fear and crunchiness). I’m rather putting this on this list for the experience, as well as for you to have the ‘bragging rights’ of saying that you’ve eaten one! Besides, it is believed that these pack a LOT of protein and with no fat! So, why not?
The quintessential Northern Thai dish of crispy and soft egg noodles in a creamy, curry-like sauce made with coconut milk. It’s typically made with chicken or beef, though some places offer versions with pork, shrimp, or fish as well. It’s usually served with a side of chopped red onions, pickled cabbage, and a wedge of lime. If you like, you can add pork rinds into your Khao soi for some extra crunch. And, yes sometimes they do make the vegetarian curry noodle as well. Served noodles vary from white rice noodles to brown glass noodles.
