Indonesia has a range of unexpectedly bizarre foods beyond foreigners’ imaginations, from the grilled bats to the skewed snake. Many regard the exotic delicacies as something healthy and rich in taste.
Here is one of the extreme Indonesian foods to try at least once in your life time, it called belalang goreng.
Belalang goreng, which literally means “deep-fried grasshopper,” is great for insect snack lovers. It is commonly found and sold by the roadside vendors in Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta. Before the cooking process, the animal’s legs and wings are removed. The locals usually marinate the grasshoppers with garlic, salt, kaffir leaves, and coriander then fry them to a crisp.
