Tacos with insects - level 2
This news is about food which is not for everybody, certainly not for those who are afraid of bugs, spiders and scorpions. A restaurant in Mexico offers tacos with insects on top.
The insects are wild. People go into the hills, lift up the rocks and find insects in the weeds. You must be really careful because some insects can sting you.
Some people say that they would never eat an insect, but then they try it and they like it! Scorpions, for example, don’t have characteristic flavours. The preparation gives them one.
Difficult words: weed (wild plant), sting (attack with an insect’s sharp body part), flavour (way something tastes).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
