Part Of Tour

Pretty interesting to learn all about the lifecycle of a cricket and how they are used in Vietnam. Came here as part of a multi stop tour, otherwise wouldn’t have visited.

Eat fried crickets & rice wine
Nov 2019
This place is a Cricket Farm and Silkworm Farm. It is not a very big place and doesn’t take long to see everything. After that the main attraction is eating fried crickets with rice wine. Taste good. Anyway, it is not that big a deal. If you were to miss this place you would not be missing much. But if you go, don’t miss out and try eating fried crickets with rice wine!

The crickets were tasty
Nov 2019
Glad we came here as it was a really interesting place and i never realised that there were such a thing as (cricket farms). We were guided round the farm and shown the process. Afterwards we got to taste fried crickets that tasted surprisingly good as a devoured about 20 of them. Later we tasted cricket tea and rice wine, both good enough for me. This was also a restaurant specialising in cricket dishes, photos adorned the walls. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, even though my wife would not try the crickets.

Abused animals

The animals they keep there are kept in appalling conditions. Heartbreaking, ostrich with all its feathers plucked out. Porcupine in concrete container a meter squared, depressed facing the corner. They should be ashamed, do not fund this terrible place.

It nice to see what might be future food and the extra info but because I had already had grasshoppers in Thailand on the street, I skipped this time.

We ate crickets!
Dec 2018 • Couples
If you are around here pop in and have a quick look. The crickets are farmed and harvested for the growing market. Let’s face it, with food security a real problem into the future, we have to look for solutions. We enjoyed trying these critters that are fried for you, served with chilli sauce and home made happy water (rice wine). A cute stop.

Worth a visit

An usual little find but glad we visited! We saw all the crickets and even got to taste them- not as bad as you’d think! We also were offered the rice wine that they produce. Nice place for a short stop off on a tour of Da Lat.

A small business producing wine and cricket farm
Dec 2017 • Friends
A small business producing few types of alcohol, by fragmenting rye and corn . Also adding few types of insects to the alcohol like crickets or even snakes . Quite strange.

Not worth the visit
Sep 2017 • Couples
If it was not for the posters we would have been non the wiser on the life cycle of crickets that end up on a plate. We didn't try the cooked crickets. Beside the cricket farm is the owners chickens that are kept in the smallest of cages with no water.

Nothing special
Sep 2017 • Couples
Me and my husband had a stop on our way to Elephant waterfall. I was interested to see it. There was one lady, she didnt speak english. Tried to explain about crickets life circle but there was too less information. Only one poster with some pictures. Afer very short walk around tried cooked crickets and a shot of rice wine. Lady was very nice and tried to communicate :)
