One man’s meat is another man’s poison is a popular proverb we are familiar with. But in a popular eatery joint in US, the ‘poison’ they are serving has become the favourite of many.
This restaurant in question, called the Bull City Burger and Brewery located in the city of Durham in North Carolina municipality serve a ‘hot’ tarantula burgers to their customers. Yes, you read it right, the classic American dish is now being topped with a giant fried spider.
The restaurant is serving the special burgers for their Exotic Meat Month campaign, according to several reports. Surprisingly, they don’t only serve tarantulas, the restaurant has been serving exotic meats like iguana, alligator, rabbit, python, turtle and various insects for the past six years.
For those wondering how it tastes, the restaurant answered a user on Twitter saying it feels very close to crab or “other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste”.
People say it tastes most like crab, or other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste. BUT, the legs, the body…each bite tastes a bit different. Best way to answer that question? Try one for yourself!

This will not surprise many people because our different cultures influence what we eat and it wouldn’t be bad to have a change of diet, would it?
