Any restos serving insects on the menu?

I know Vij's in Vancouver served a dish with crickets in it a few years ago but they are no longer offering that. Anyone know of any restos in Canada serving insects on the menu?

Vij's Restaurant

    Not on purpose. I hear (someone please correct me if I have this info wrong), that Vij's were forced to take the cricket bread off the menu by the health authorities. If that is true, then you won't find any place serving insects. The closest place that I know of for sure is a Thai place in Portland OR called Mee Sen. (I had some fried grasshopper there.)

      I wonder if any of the Korean restaurants - especially the downtown ones catering to the ESL student demographic - would have beondegi (silkworm pupae) on the menu (or off menu, on request).
