The Khmer, Thai Isaan, Chinese, Vietnamese, and other Asian ethnics have always eaten rice field rats. They're not street rats.

This should give pause to all of those worldly guys looking East for those Asian Honey mail order brides.. They come with a little baggage that they weren't counting Carbs on.. LOL >>;)

Hah.

As I said, not eveyone eats this wierd stuff. The Saigon Vietnamese don't eat dogs or cats (even they are grossed out by it), but there are enough Hanoians in Saigon to support a thriving "Dog Street" which I won't discuss in any detail, use your imagination.

As for Cambodia, I don't know how many times I turned down the 10 cent, plastic baggie full of roast locusts. Yuch. The kids come running through the restaurants offering them as an appetizer.
