Grasshoppers are known to leap long distances and for their musical abilities. They're also considered a delicacy in many cultures, including in Mexico.

Tacos de chapulines, or grasshopper tacos, can be bought from carts in Mexico and also from Galaxy Global Eatery in Manhattan.

Galaxy Global Eatery,  where the bizarre meets the vegetarian or the omnivore. Whether it's bugs, seaweed, or hemp, they've found a way to put it on their menu.  George Bodarky had a chance to try the grasshopper tacos for himself.
