Eating an Ant at Banteay Srei

At one point visiting Banteay Srei, our guide Lucky motioned us towards a tree and stated that the huge red ants scampering all over the trunk could be eaten. Moments like these are what I find fascinating about countries that are so different to what we're used to. However, eating a live ant freshly picked off a tree?

Besides, I had a job to do - to photograph and document. So Linh, who is on a roll from eating insects in Bangkok, decides to go for it. Apparently, these ants taste really sour, enough to numb your tongue, and can be sprinkled over rice or mixed with fish paste to flavour it.
