BUGS AND ICE-CREAM! WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT!
9 years ago we began selling scoops of Three Twins Vanilla ice-cream topped with our Toffee Mealworms at the San Francisco Street Food Festival and it was a hit. It only took 7 years for an ice-cream company to come and ask for our delicious critters! Salt & Straw is now serving for the second year a Matcha based ice-cream mixed with our own Toffee Brittle Bugitos and Chocolate Covered Crickets for their October Spooktacular flavors. Look for this very unique ice-cream at any of their West Coast locations. NOTE: Mealworms taste like nuts!

PAST / FUTURES POP UP DINNER #2 MAY 2nd , 2018
A taste of edible insects
Join us for an evening of Mexican pre-Columbian (ancestral) flavors touched by hints of the future. Monica Martinez, artist and founder of Don Bugito and Illya Haro, art and experience curator invite you to join us for a 5-course edible insect dinner designed to challenge the culinary norms and the perception of what food is. We will talk about the culture, history, and design choices behind these delicious dishes while you sip a variety of tasty El Mero Mero mezcal + non-alcoholic drinks and Projecto Diaz Coffee.
P / F POP UP DINNER #2 dinner is in collaboration with MEX AM Festival by the Consulate General of Mexico, San Francisco. The festival presents Mexico as a country of innovation and as a leader in arts and creativity. This year the festival includes a much more comprehensive program with Mexican talent in the United States. This special characteristic looks for the promotion of the people who are changing the world and making great contributions as a result of the integration between both countries, Mexico and the United States of America.
