Want to try deep-fried tarantula?
Deep-fried tarantula are common in most restaurants in Cambodia, as what I have learned, though I never had visited Cambodia ever since. You might ask yourself why in the hell would you eat such delicacy if in the first place your stomach would surely disagree with it? But, that's what Camdodians love to eat as some of us Filipinos love to eat "Balut".

How do they cook tarantula?
Spider hunting has been the latest craze in Cambodia. It has been known that many Cambodians believed in the tarantula's medicinal purposes. These spiders are called 'a-ping' by most Cambodians. The main source of these spiders is the small town of Skun or Skuon which is located in Kompong Cham Province about 90km north of Phnom Penh. Skun is popularly known as the 'spider town' by most Cambodians.
