A man eats a maguey worms taco at the Restaurant La Cocinita de San Juan in Mexico City September 12, 2014. It's a dish that's not for everybody, certainly not for those afraid of bugs. But one small Mexico City restaurant called Restaurant La Cocinita de San Juan is sure to give gastronomic daredevils a new food challenge -- tacos with insect toppings.

Students of the University of Costa Rica's Food Technology School have developed two projects-larva patties made of plantain and mealworm larvae and cookies made of powdered crickets, to be presented in an competition held by the U.S. Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in July. The projects aim to help children in rural communities in Costa Rica's Northern Zone and also to be used to feed children with malnutrition problems in Haiti, local media reported.

The lizards, which are considered a delicacy in some parts of the Middle East, are caught in the spring season using hooks and sniffer dogs as well as bare hands. The lizards can be grilled or eaten raw, and according to popular belief, their blood is used to strengthen the body and treat diseases. Picture taken April 19.

A dish that contains grasshoppers is seen at the Corazon de Maguey restaurant in Mexico City June 18, 2013. Mexico's taste for eating creepy crawlies, originating from the Pre-Columbian era, could be the answer to ending hunger. United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) is encouraging the production of edible insects to supplement diets in areas where malnutrition is rife and as a measure to combat obesity. Nowhere has the message been more warmly received than in Mexico where insects have been part of the diet for hundreds of years. Pre-Columbian civilizations in the country ate them frequently as a main source of protein because meat through cattle raising did not exist. Although conquistadors discouraged insect consumption, ethnic groups in the country continued to eat them. Picture taken on June 18, 2013.

A vendor cuts dog meat for sale at his roadside stall in Duong Noi village, outside Hanoi December 16, 2011. While animal rights activists have condemned eating dog meat as cruel treatment of the animals, it is still an accepted popular delicacy for some Vietnamese, as well in some other Asian countries. Duong Noi is well-known as a dog-meat village, where hundreds of dogs are killed each day for sale as popular traditional food. Dog-eating as a custom is rooted in Vietnam and was developed as a result of poverty. One kilogram of dog meat costs about 130,000 dongs ($6.2). REUTERS/Kham (VIETNAM - Tags: ANIMALS SOCIETY FOOD)

Two snakes are seen inside their compartment in wooden cupboards labelled "Poisonous Snakes", at a snake soup store in Hong Kong January 29, 2013. There are scores of people in Hong Kong who have through generations tamed snakes to make soup out of them, a traditional cuisine believed to be good for the health. Yet the people behind providing fresh snakes for the savoury meal thought to speed up the body's blood flow and keep it strong in the cold winter months may be doomed, with young people increasingly reluctant to take on a job they see as hard and dirty.

It's the end of a school day in the eastern Chinese city of Dongyang, and eager parents collect their children after a hectic day of primary school. But that's just the start of busy times for dozens of egg vendors across the city, deep in coastal Zhejiang province, who ready themselves to cook up a unique springtime snack favoured by local residents.

Mealworm quiches are seen at the Rijn IJssel school for chefs in Wageningen January 12, 2011. All you need to do to save the rainforest, improve your diet, better your health, cut global carbon emissions and slash your food budget is eat bugs. Mealworm quiche, grasshopper springrolls and cuisine made from other creepy crawlies is the answer to the global food crisis, shrinking land and water resources and climate-changing carbon emissions, Dutch scientist Arnold van Huis says. To attract more insect-eaters, Van Huis and his team of scientists at Wageningen have worked with a local cooking school to produce a cookbook and suitable recipes. Picture taken January 12.

A raw blood dish is displayed with cooked entrails at a restaurant in Hanoi April 28, 2009. Frozen pudding from fresh duck or pig blood is a popular dish in the Southeast Asian country although duck blood is less consumed following bird flu outbreaks that have killed at least 55 Vietnamese since late 2003. In Vietnam, there appeared to be a degree of confusion towards swine flu which is not in fact linked to pigs alone -- but an assortment of swine, human and avian viruses. One bowl of raw blood costs VND10,000 ($0.55). REUTERS/Kham (VIETNAM HEALTH ANIMALS SOCIETY FOOD)
