Red Ant Larvae @ Siem Reap

Another delicacy in the old market of Siem Reap. We walk into the market, the usual pathway, the floor is wet with puddles of water, it feels like things are jumping over you when they are not. I see a girl seated and in front is her small round bamboo basket. She smiles and says in Khmer, “fresh and yummy red ant larvae” as I smile back and pull out my iPhone. Her neighbour asks the name me the name in English, and I reply, “larvae”.
