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. Yup, lots.

    Just kidding. I can't imagine wanting any, and there are lots of rules, maybe the reason Vij's doesn't have it anymore.

    1. You might have to go down to the grounds. Last year it hit the newswire that Cricket Pizza was a new offering. This is purely heresay on my part...

          I'm pretty sure diamondsintherough is referring to printed menu items not items skittering across one's menu. :)

            Awww, too bad Maple, I expect many of us could have red-carded a few establishments.....

        2. Hahaha...thanks maplesugar for the clarification :)

          1. While not restaurants, there are always vendors at the reptile shows that have bug candy and snacks. The website is for detail
