Restaurant Serves Ants as Delicacy - as part of the travel series by GeoBeats.
What's the most unusual dish you have ever had? In order to please their guests, great chefs worldwide are always pushing the envelope in terms of the diversity of ingredients they use.
World-class Danish restaurant Noma did a temporary ten day stint in London, and served up ants to its patrons. The ants were served on a cabbage leaf drizzled with crème fraiche, and reportedly have a flavor of lemongrass after being anesthetized with cold before being eaten. Also included in the meal was edible soil with radishes buried in hazelnut, malt, rye, beer and butter with a layer of creme fraiche.
Over 20 thousand ants were imported for the twenty scheduled meals that sold out in two hours at 306 dollars a seat, due to Noma’s recognition among food connoisseurs. Voted the world’s best restaurant by Restaurant Magazine, Noma gets somewhere around 100 thousand requests a month for reservations, but the location in Copenhagen, Denmark only seats 40 people.
