Typhoon Warning
If you're eating dinner at a fancy restaurant, and the waiter brings you a plate full of bugs, do you:

A. Jump up and scream.

B. Call the Health Department

C. Eat them.
 
If the restaurant is called Typhoon, in Santa Monica, California, then the correct answer is "Eat them"! The restaurant actually features bugs on the menu, and proudly serves them to diners.
 
The two bug-infested entrees are:
 
"Stir-fried Crickets," which are sautéed in olive oil and garlic, and "Giant Wild Mountain Ants." The chef is planning to add termites and water bugs to the menu as well.
 
Sometimes, says the chef, people do jump out of their chairs when the dishes arrive at their tables. But kids seem love them and have no problem eating bugs--and eventually their parents will give in and start eating the bugs, too.
