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?

    Atlantic on Dundas in Toronto sometimes has a dish they call "the way we used to eat" which is a salad of foraged greens, mushrooms and crickets. For legal reasons they can't sell it so officially it's offered as a barter deal.

      Interesting - I didn't know they couldn't sell it legally. Thanks so much bytepusher!

        i had a dish there called scary things on a stick. duck hearts, snails (i think...it's been a while), and crickets.

        the food there was adventurous but nothing to write home about.
