The World-Famous Ant-Serving restaurant
So, where was Nyong’o sampling this ant-flavored food? The actress was in Los Angeles at Noma for a gala event. Nova is run by chef René Redzepi, and It is considered one of the finest restaurants in the country by many..
Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark is the original. It serves ants with shrimp and beef tartare in some dishes. While the diners at Noma might be used to eating ant-flavored food, it looks like most of Nyong’o’s Instagram followers won’t be sampling the dishes any time soon.
