That’s a grasshopper taco above. I never had one before, but it was on the menu so I gave it a try.

Turned out to be crunchy. Not particularly tasty, but not bad either. I like to try new things and that was new for me, even though grasshoppers have been human food for a long, long time.

A colleague of mine was fond of saying, “Do more of what’s working, less of what’s not, and try new things.”
