The Grass-Whopper: A Burger Made with Crickets

It looks tasty, doesn’t it? There’s Chihuahua cheese and chipotle mayonnaise with fresh lettuce, onion and tomato on a bun. Also crickets. That’s the heart of the flavor for the Grass-Whopper.

Antojeria Popular in Queens, New York, sells, among other dishes, the above Grass-Whopper and the below Cricket Tostada. They’re quite popular. Customers buy about 100 Grass-Whoppers a day. Artist Pedro Reyes conceived of the burger as a way to make eating insects a mainstream activity. The crickets are shipped to the restaurant dried, then fried in a skillet. They have a smoky flavor and crunchy texture.
