Eat Grasshopper

Really! I flew up to Boston Sunday night ahead of yesterday's day of meetings with investors, and had the rare pleasure of dinner with my Bostonian friend Erik.
He took me to Somerville, about 10 minutes north of Boston, to 'Tu y Yo,' for perhaps the most authentic Mexican food I've had outside of Mexico! First up: "Empanadas de Chicharron de Chapulin," which are quite simply corn flour turnovers filled with fried grasshoppers!

It may sound horrifying, but it was thoroughly tasty. Grasshoppers after cooking are closer to salted snacks than insects, toasted to crunchy, salty, spicy perfection. With a lovely, mildly piquant green dipping sauce..
