I forgot to bring my camera this time while eating a bug dish! I was invited to taste the night life in Changsha, the capital of Hunan. We went to a place to eat "night meals", which was fully packed at midnight. I happened to see the cooked grasshoppers and ordered one. But no camera. so I put the hoppers in a styrofoam box and took the picture the next day. The grasshoppers were cooked with hotpeppers, and as with most of insects I have tried, fried. Unlike all other bugs I have eaten before, this one did not taste like freshly cooked. And the only one I had to throw some away!
