chapulines and sal de gusano

tlacualchiuhqui | Oct 1, 2011 08:59 PM

Though I know that several restaurants in the city sell dishes featuring chapulines, I'm looking for somewhere in the NYC area where I could buy plain hoppers to use in my own cooking. Does anyone know of anyplace that might have them, or have specific ideas for where to look? Sources for restaurants like El Globo and Toloache? If those places aren't importing them, which they definitely could be...

Also, has anyone seen sal de gusano or entire dried gusanos del maguey around? I suspect that you'd find these things in the same places that you'd find chapulines.
