Extreme eating is becoming a popular sport on TV and in Blogland. Here's the latest installment of the hilarious Steve Don't Eat That!, wherein he tackles silkworm larvae.
Then there's Deep End Dining, a group blog that's been around about as long as Eating L.A., which introduced us to the wonders of balut and live octopus at Koreatown's The Prince.
Both of these sites are quite entertaining, although they really aren't devoted to the pleasure of tasting wonderful things. I'm not really into gross food for grossness' sake, but you've got to read Steve anyway. And if you want to be able to say you've had something gross, but aren't in the mood for silkworm larvae, try the harsmar drinks at Hui Lau Shan, 250 W. Valley Blvd., San Gabriel. The little frog ovaries are hidden in a tasty mango smoothie and you'll never even know they're there.
