Diner: "Excuse me waiter, there's a fly in my dish."
Waiter: "Mi amigo, that ain't no fly, that's ant larvae."
Diner: "Ah, very good, muchas gracias."
While the name may sound hoity toity - escamoles, escargots - here's one dish where it wouldn't matter if you found a bug on your plate. Because the whole dish is a heaping pile of ant larvae, harvested from the roots of the agave plant, also used to make tequila. Considered a delicacy in Mexico, the dish is often referred to as "insect caviar" and looks like a harmless plate of white beans. Its texture has been described as resembling that of cottage cheese and is supposed to taste nutty and buttery. Good source of protein too.
