Mmm, crickets. A pop-up event featuring delicious, delicious insects for lunch is coming to The Occidental next month.
"Pestaurant" is a global event taking place throughout twelve different countries, including the U.S. It's sponsored by the pest control company Ehrlich.
D.C.'s version ("Pestaurant on Pennsey") is being held at The Occidental June 4 from 11:30 to 3 p.m. They'll be serving up grasshopper burgers, crispy BBQ mealworms and scorpion lollipops, among other dishes. The company will donate $5 to D.C. Central Kitchen for every person who attends. The lunch is free. Fans of Oyamel's grasshopper tacos should definitely be in attendance.
