Escamoles Ice Cream Taste Test

Strange Mexican Food: Escamoles Ice Cream Taste Test :
After eating some amazing traditional Mexican Food with Dan of The New Travel, we went for dessert… Escamole ice cream aka ant egg ice cream at Tlacoyotitlan. Mexican sweets and Mexican dessert are usually delicious. We weren’t sure about this one!

Tlacoyotitlan is a restaurant in Colonia Santa Maria la Ribera in CDMX. In the center of this neighborhood, there is a beautiful Kiosko where locals usually dance in the afternoon. This amazing restaurant in Mexico City is right beside this plaza and has some of the best Garnachas (Mexican street food), and best insect dishes I have had in the city.

In the previous video, The New Travel and I had the Huarache Ancestral. A large corn tortilla filled with beans, topped with Chapulines (grasshoppers), Coaches (beetles), Gusano de Maguey (big worms), Chilaquiles (little worms), escamoles (ant larvae) and a tasty little scorpion on top.

What do you think? Would you give ant egg ice cream a taste test? I wouldn’t say it’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had but was really surprised by the experience. It was pretty damn good!
