Recommendation by Lemi
Isan cuisine from the northeastern region of Thailand is known for a very specific salad, Som Tam, but another dish offers a little more bite. Spicy Raw Ant Eggs Salad (“Koi Khai Mot Dang”, ก้อยไข่มดแดง) is a delicacy highly recommended at the Baan E-Sarn Mungyos restaurant. The ant eggs resemble white beans on the plate and actually pack a lot of protein. Red ants have a fiery reputation, but this delicacy is a beloved dish in the homes of northeastern locals. In the mouth, the eggs lightly ooze with fat and fluff; their taste, is delicate and slightly sour from the red ants’ diet of mango leaves.
