If you consider yourself a foodie and you want to take a trip, look no further than Oaxaca, one of Mexico's most important gastronomical hubs, for a unique culinary experience.

The host of "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" traveled to the region to try several of its delicacies, including the specially seasoned chapulines, or grasshoppers.
