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?

  1. The question has been asked on the montreal board a couple of years ago and as far as I remember there was no restaurant in town that did that.

    A few years ago, the "Insectarium" had bug demo where they presented bugs to eat, it was somewhat succesful, but not enough for a return (I think).

    You could contact them to see if they have any leads.

    (joke : )
    Other than that, you could ask for an "unwashed" salad at a restaurant, you are bound to find a couple of happy critters in there !!! :-)
