Fried bamboo larva on a banana leaf with tomato roses, scalloped cucumbers and spring onions. In Thai the larvae are called rot duan, "express train," because they resemble tiny trains. They taste "like salty crispy shrimp puffs" says Peter Menzel. In the Kan Ron Ban Suan Restaurant, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
