4 creepy dishes in Nghe An

In Vietnam, tourists will be overwhelmed by abundant delicious dishes with a large number of nutrients. For many locals, this includes dishes prepared with a wide variety of creatures, even insects.

Today, Vinh Guru’s blog is going to show several weird cuisines existing in some areas in Nghe An.  

  1. Silkworm’s Pupa 

An exotic meal is prepared from silkworm pupa after the silk is taken from its cocoon. The dish is a bit shocking at the first look, but your perception may change after you enjoy its buttery taste as it is melting in your mouth. When talking about eating larva, most of the people are still hesitant, but whoever has had the chance will want to enjoy it one more time. Not only the good taste, but also it contains quite a lot of good nutrients for human health, can promote children’s growth, and is antirachitic (prevents constipation).

  1. Ant soup

Basically, it is the same as other soups, however, it is cooked with eggs and ants. 

This dish is only in the Thai community in Western Nghe An. The red ant that lives only in broad canopy trees, along streams or in old forests is the important ingredient. With a sweet and sour taste, ant egg soup is also a cooling dish in the hot summer days of Thai people.
