Antojeria La Popular Asks "Who Wants Toasted Crickets?"

New tapas joint Antojeria La Popular is coming to SoHo from the team behind Taka Taka and Viva La Crepe. There will be tostadas, tapas-style servings of ceviche and plenty of Mexican hot chocolate to go around (a dozen varieties, to be precise). One dish in particular got our attention: toasted crickets on a blue corn tostada. That's a picture of it above, and we suspect diners will come down in two camps on this one: those who can't get over the "ick factor," and the adventurous types who see trying this as a test of their culinary mettle.

Of course those who don't want to gorge on crickets will find plenty of other stuff to order. Those looking for a quick bite can stop by the standalone Antojeria La Popular Tortilleria, a street kiosk that will serve blue-corn tortillas and quesadillas along with corn in a cup and Mexican sodas. The eatery is scheduled to open on January 25 at 50 Spring Street. Get more info here.
