  pla rah (with maggots)

 

Cambodia

The saying that the flavour of pla rah (fig.), a kind of preserved fish, strongly increases if the fish is fermented ‘until maggots appear’...

 

... is not an exaggeration to scare off outsiders, but a gross truth, as can be seen in these pictures made at a fish factory on the outskirts of the city of Battambang.
