Is that a grasshopper in your taco or are you just happy to see me

"Tacos de chapulines" are a popular cart and bar snack in Mexico City, Oaxaca and even in certain parts of the U.S. Devotees cite the cooked bugs’ appealing crunch and protein content – said to be twice that of beef.??

However, local authorities aren’t keen on where La Oaxaqueña Bakery and Restaurant owner Harry Persaud was sourcing his grasshoppers. While he has a permit to import them, the vendor he’s using is not FDA-approved, and he has yet to locate a domestic, approved source.

Persaud is reportedly considering raising his own grasshoppers.
