> Lovers of an expensive edible worm known as “ulat lamas” in Dalat, Sarawak, were delighted when they found the delicacy, which retails between RM400 and RM600 per kg, among the trees at KM7 Jalan Dalat-Sungai Kut.
Several lovers of the worm – considered an exotic food in Sarawak – were seen collecting them, according Berita Harian.
Senah Mat, 88, said the worms with shiny black shells, tasted good when boiled with water and salt or grilled.
“This worm is clean and good for health,” she added.
Senah said ulat lamas, which is a common dish among the Melanau community in Mukah, was loaded with fat, tasted sweet, and could be eaten with sago or rice.
However, it is not easily available and can only be found on nyatoh leaves in certain forests.
