Long Before the food scientists started bugging us about the nutritious value of critters, the Cambodians used to enjoy their platter with the viscous little creatures that are usually living at the bottom of your darkest nightmares.

The Bugs Cafe at Siem Reap presents Cambodia’s insect-based cuisine in a traditional restaurant setting.

The Cafe, near the night market, opens everyday at 5PM and serves delicious insect platters until late hours.

You can choose from a veritable feast of Ant Salads, Tarantula Donuts, Insect Skewers, Pan Fried Scorpions and many more! The idea of gorging on a Tarantula may horrify you, but the Tarantula Kebab served here are a hot favorite among all customers. Pair it with some carefully elaborated original cocktails, healthy fruit shakes or wine to enhance the feeling of this intrepid experience.
