fear factor?

Have you ever heard of ulat mulong?

Well it is what you see in the picture below.


If you're Sarawakian or if you ever visit Sarawak, you'll surely get to see this kind of cute fatty worm selling at the wet market in any places. It is known as sago worm or grub, a famous delicacy in Sarawak. It is believed to contain 3-7% of protein, 10-30% fat and the rest is water. Just like the worm in fruits, it is safe to be eaten, either raw or cooked.

I've tried this ulat mulong for my first time yesterday.

-before it was cooked-

It was my big sister who bought it for us yesterday morning.
We didn't dare to eat it raw so we fried it.
-cooked-

-3 mulongs for RM1-

Looking nice?

Or gross? =P

Despite the look, it's very delicious. It tasted like french fries with abit of cheese. lol.
I think I was brave enough to dare to eat this worm. Can consider joining Fear Factor already.
Heh heh!

it looks gross if you already know that it's a worm but when it's fried it doesn't look like a worm^^, I'd like to try it since you said it tastes like french fries but I'm such a scaredy cat and I hate worms:[ And I think I'm never gonna be given the chance to taste it anyways^^,
