A small pot of Caterpillar Fungus Soup with Black Chicken, prepared by the Wine Forest restaurant costs 50 yuan, or $6.25 U.S.; the relatively high cost, especially considering that the soup contains only three or four of the fungi, originated from its medicinal value for the treatment of asthma, colds, jaundice, and tuberculosis. Guangzhou, China. The bamboo sticks are marked with the names of dishes available at the restaurant and act as a rustic menu. (Man Eating Bugs page 100,101)
