Fascists and Grasshoppers

In the spirit of doing things "with spine" - in design and all things - when I visited the resturant Oyamel Cocina Mexicana in Washington, DC I obviously had to partake in this unique menu item:

Taco de Chapulines

The legendary oaxacan speciality of sautéed grasshoppers, served with shallots, garlic and tequila $4.50

It was pretty delicious, though I have to say that the grasshoppers looked almost exactly like what I fed my Leopard Gecko. Delicious!
This nicely rounded out the evening, which was primarily filled by program with Steve Heller on the topic of totalitarian propaganda design.
