The question I get more than any other is, "Where can I go to eat bugs?"

It turns out, most newbies are more interested in having people cook bugs for them, than they are in cooking bug themselves. Makes sense, I also grew to love bugs by having other people cook them for me—in my case, Thai street food vendors and the head chef at my favorite restaurant, Insects in the Backyard.

The Solution: You Can Now Search for Places to Eat Edible Insects

The Bugs for Beginners site now has a feature which will allow you to search for edible insect restaurants or events, either where you are or in a place where you plan to be.

How can I find edible insect cooks and events near me?


  1. Go to the new Search page. You will have the option to allow us to detect your current location, or you can simply search by city and/or country, if you know you'll soon be traveling to a place that might have yummy bugs around.
  2. Click it.
  3. Ta da!

It's that easy. You will immediately be directed to our list of edible insect restaurants and upcoming events, sorted by how close they are to your supplied location.

What if I Know About Upcoming Edible Bugs Events?

That is awesome, thank you so much for wanting to help!

All you have to do is tell us about it here and it will automatically be added.

This new feature is very much of a work in progress, with the desired goal of making it easier for bug chefs and bug newbies to find each other and spread the love of entomocentric cuisine. If you have any suggestions on how to make it easier to use or otherwise improve it, please do not hesitate to send me an email.

And of course, much thanks to everyone who as already made lists on their own sites of blogs, such as Food Insects and Bug Burger.
