Extreme Fiji Cuisine

OK, for one, the Fijians don’t hesitate to eat insects. They particularly eat the Giant Fijian Long-Horned Beetle, scientific name Xixuthrus Heros.

They also consider the larvae edible, but because of the religious significance they ascribe to it, only the village chieftain is allowed to eat it.
