Sago larvae – a ‘must try’ delicacy

MUKAH: What you are looking at on this page are sago larvae, people who sell the worms for a living, and people who enjoy eating them in a variety of ways.

The sago worm is a delicacy in Mukah. From the sago palm, the Melanau community has been collecting these high-protein, high-fat grub for food for centuries. It can be dried, smoked, grilled, stir fried with soy sauce, butter, salt and chillies, or for the real connoisseur, eaten alive – still squiggly, warm, and apparently, juicy upon the bite.
