Silk Worm

I tried the silk worm, as recommend by the seller. It was an inch long, colored a light shade of yellow, and a had a smooth, oily coating. The taste was reminiscent of stale popcorn, with a bit more crunchiness. Maybe I should have tried it with Thai chili sauce and lemon grass like the other natives who ran up excitedly to the cart, I but wanted to get the taste of the simple raw flavor.
