Eat This: Thailand's dancing shrimp (goong ten), served still alive in a bowl of spices

WATCH  | At a lakeside in restaurant in Chiang Mai, Thailand, you can order a bowl full of live shrimp. Good luck eating all of them though -- the shrimp jump, or dance, out of the bowl they are served in.

 
The origin of dancing shrimp


Goong ten, or jumping shrimp, is a dish that originates in Isan, a northeastern Thai region that borders Laos and Cambodia. 

Isan is known for dishes containing all sorts of raw meat, like beef, pork and fish. 

Goong Ten is not an easy-to-find dish, but you can hunt it down from some street vendors in cities around Thailand, like Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
