Various foodstuffs were sold in this large Khlong Toei Market. Most of them were also familiar to me. Yet some foodstuffs were uncommon in Japan. Walking around this market, I found giant water bugs were sold. They were edible. Thailand is an advanced country in insect foods. And it is said giant water bugs are exclusive.
In the meantime, I came to another shop which sold uncommon foodstuffs. The article for sale in this shop was a frog. Many frogs were set out on the table. Although it is not uncommon to see frogs in Japan, I have never seen frogs in any supermarkets.
However, frog legs are one of the delicacies of French and Chinese cuisine. So it might be also used in Thai cuisine. Anyway, the frogs which were cut open the belly were scary for me a little.
