Hi, I'm throwing a Halloween party this Saturday that will feature a range of disgusting looking (but hopefully delicious tasting) foods. Does anyone have any recommendations on places to purchase gross foods?
So far I've found scorpion lollipops, maggots, and grasshoppers at Evolution (http://www.evolutionnyc.com/). However, their insects all have flavorings already on them (cheese/salt&vinegar), which isn't ideal since I'll be using them in other dishes. I'd also like to find edible scorpions that are not encased in sugar--perhaps canned or roasted.
Are there any other places to buy insects? I was thinking of asking Taka if I could buy some of theirs (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/19855...).
Has anyone found Pok de ki or Korean roasted caterpillars/silkworms anywhere other than Queens?
Any suggestions on good butchers that might have odd meats? Brains, balls and such?
Any other suggestions on truly odd or frightening foods or drinks I could buy in NYC and prepare at home?
