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.
We found and ate these dancing shrimp in a beautiful locale: Huay Tueng Thao
