But they are a difficult sell in the Western world where people struggle to dissassociate the nutritional value from the source, with most insects considered pests.

"You have to name them something else," suggested one El Toro patron when asked about overcoming fears of eating insects in Australia.

"We don't eat cow, we tend to eat steak and sausages," he says. "With pig we eat pork and bacon, so you have to start by naming them something else."

Blackburn is leading the charge to change the perception of edible insects.

She runs Australia's only commercial bug farm, supplying a growing number of restaurants across the country, breeding hundreds of kilogrammes of insects each week, including savoury crickets, dehydrated ants, and even a "special" kind of roasted cockroach "that don't have any germs on them".

Australia's trendy urban farmer's markets too are a popular spot for her produce, with inquisitive foodies sampling creations like mealworm and chocolate coated popcorn, and green tea and honey roasted black ants.

"I'm going to go a big gob," says 53-year-old market goer Guy McEwan, putting a handful of a savoury mix of mealworms, ants, crickets and popcorn into his mouth.

"It's great. I love em, I love bugs," he adds, likening the texture and flavour to crisps.

Others at the crowded Saturday market in the hip Sydney suburb of Redfern are drawn to the novelty.

"Sometimes when you move the packet it looks like they're alive," says Danny Stagnitta, 42, while giving his snack box a shake.
