Pretty sad really. Presume these are luxury items rather than people eating small creatures out of necessity. Bring on those insect gourmet dishes now please. sad

Stir fried locust is very nice with a dash of soy sauce?

In Laos I doubt it will be luxury.

Just meat.

There's a fairly healthy black-market trade for illegally imported bush meat in London these days.
