These are sago worms the famous delicacy of the natives in Sarawak. It feeds on sago palms that’s how its name came about. How to eat the worm you ask? Well, you’ll need to have a strong stomach even for hearing this…

Option 1: you can fried it.

Option 2: RAW. Bite off the head (trust you know which end) and chew the spongy wormy fresh!!! Complement that with sago.

I saw an episode in ‘Fear Factor’ long time ago, the participants were challenged to eat sago worm raw.. including the head! Now why the head is a no no…well there was a kid who ate the worm whole and it was believed that the worm ate his internal organ – he didn’t live to tell his story. Lesson learnt is that chew your sago worm properly!
