Welcome to another mouthwatering installment of <italics>Did You See That?</italics>, the gallery that brings you the taste sensation that's sweepin' the nation: a burger topped with dried grasshoppers and mealworms. This bad boy was on the menu at a recent event sponsored by Ehrlich Pest Control at the Occidental Restaurant in Washington, DC. For one day only (thank heaven), Pop-up Pestaurants appeared in cities around this big ol' globe to tantalize your palate with sweet and savory edible bugs and much, much more. Ehrlich even donated $5 to DC Central Kitchen for every person who managed to choke something down at the event and, we presume, not bring it up in polite company.

Brussels (home of the famous sprouts) wants to become a major actor on the European gastronomic scene. No word if grasshoppers and mealworms were on the menu.
