Bugs Are on the Menu at the El Paso Zoo
In summer, the stomachs of America start thinking of ice cream, hamburgers, and -- if you're in El Paso-- yummy wax worms, grasshoppers and ant pupae. The El Paso zoo is hosting Bug Fest again where the guests can visit, learn a bit about bugs and maybe even try a full menu of dishes that present the insects at their very best. All thanks to the culinary genius of El Paso Zoo’s executive chef, Miguel Guillen.
Some of the highlights of the menu include: Texas grasshopper crostiniwax worm wonton chips, tostadas de chapulines, , fry ant pupae on a cracker, chocolate chip cricket cookies, toasted cicada salad, and sweet cricket popcorn.
