Khun Beum is also quick to debunk the image that some people may have of insect snacks being typically low-class. “Some people may mistakenly think that insects are a snack for poor, uneducated people, but I have many hi-so [high-society] customers,” he says, busily serving customers. He’s right. Things have changed so much.
A bag of deep-fried insects used to be known as a popular snack among bar girls and lower-paid workers such as factory workers, but it is not the case any more. During our conversation, I noticed plenty of people parking fancy cars nearby and buying his product. There were also many students and office workers arriving, mostly on motorbikes. The popularity of insects, it seems, is universal and classless.
Khun Beum serves insectes every evening until about 10pm, except when it’s raining heavily. His stand is in Sapan Hin Park, right near the main circle. You will also find fried insects and worms at most night and weekend markets around the island.
