Dining With Denise Neil

Tastes like chicken (except for the hairy legs)

I'm sorry but yes, that is what you think it is.You might recall that I asked readers to send in photos of fabulous meals they’ve sampled around town and on vacation. I’m not sure this is what I had in mind, but isn’t it AWESOME???

Wellington residents RoxAnn Rooney and her husband, Robert, recently took a vacation to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. It was at a stop in Cambodia where they had the above delicacy — DEEP FRIED TARANTULAS.

Very brave RoxAnn reports that the critters tasted like (what else?) chicken, but that she had a little trouble enjoying the hairiness of the legs.

I’m going to take her word for it.
