It’s Red Ant Egg Season in Laos at the moment. Around this time of year, one can find plenty of red ant eggs ( khai mod daeng ໄຂ່ມົດແດງ or khai mod som ໄຂ່ມົດສົ້ມ ) at the local market all over the country.

On a good day, one might find a walking market ( a trader or seller ) carrying fresh produce along the streets of Vientiane, Laos and ant eggs, which is according to season to his or her front door. My relatives said it’s getting more difficult to find ant eggs each year and even more expensive to buy them due to popularity and high demand for this delicacy.
