Mexico/Queretaro: Queretaro – Tikua Sur Este Restaurant
You gotta check out the Tikua Sur Este restaurant in Queretaro to try some weird stuff. While the cuisine is mostly Oaxaca according to the menu, they do have a special section dedicated to insects and that’s where we concentrated on. First came mezcal based drinks with grasshoppers, followed by an entire plate of grasshoppers with lime. Then came guacamole with friend stink bugs, followed by tacos – one with giant ant butts and the other with local giant mesquite bugs from the nearby mountains. For entree we had stewed pig trotters (not an insect but still bizarre). Great service and amazing food in an awesome centrally-located restaurant, hopefully it all gets digested alright.
