Does anyone know of any chicago area places that currently serve fried grasshopper tacos? Just got back from mexico and had my first experience which I would like to repeat soon. I know tepatulco has an appetizer with grasshoppers on it, but I'm specifically looking for the plain tacos with grasshopper filled goodness. Ideas?
No suggestions? How disappointing. I've heard they are common in Thailand so maybe it is included on a thai menu.
I can't confirm if they are there, but Maxwell street vendors may. I say this upon recently reading a site about the eyeball tacos offered there.
They serve them minced up and fried with a lot of salt and chiles at La Oaxaquena, but not in tacos, more almost like a condiment that you sprinkle on other foods. They are REALLY salty, too salty to be in a taco. But maybe they would prepare them differently upon request.
