Eat a tarantula

It is a big mistake to not mention one of the most unique dishes in Cambodia- Tarantula. In this country, the tarantula is known as an edible food which is rich in protein. In fact, you can easily meet many bowls full of fried tarantula at Siem Reap’s markets. If you feel not good, just ignore it. But, if you want to dare yourself by taking some, you may addict to tarantula’s taste. The hairy arachnids are deep-fried in chilli and a variety of seasonal spices, so they have its exclusive flavor with a bit crunch. This texture can mesmerize you through a bite and make you never forget.
