Insect & bug eats in Toronto?
The most recent "Eating Bugs" article in TIME magazine has the adventurous side of me looking to try some fine crickets, bugs, beetles and worms cuisine. As I expected, my searches on the internet have come up with nothing. Are there any reputable places here in Toronto that have such items on their menu? Distance and price are not concerns.
i've seen it at the Sugar Mountain in Waterloo (University St. West and Philip St), but I imagine you'd probably be able to find it in any of those complete candy stores. I think there's one just north of Yonge and Eglinton and another one on Queen West somewhere between Bay and Spadina.... They'd probably be good bets :) maybe somebody here could check for you.
I only know of two 'day trip' places - both are Butterfly Conservation areas.
I've been to the one in Guelph
They have the 'feast' for a few days each year - and it was in march this year. Had several items - all fairly tasty but VERY small samples available. probably wouldn't go back.
The other one, in Niagara, I haven't visited but here's a link to an article on this year's event (also past).
The candy versions are really not that good - I've been given several and you don't get a real insect taste from any of them - just candy.
