Buggin' Out: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, January 11-15
Crickets will be on the menu at Linger beginning January 25.
This week's food adventures included a slippery, savory stew from Akwaba Restaurant in Aurora's Afrikmall; cricket tacos at Linger; and Spanish morcilla sausage, which can be found at a number of Denver-area restaurants and markets. But burgers and sausages were off the menu — at least temporarily — as sausage griller Wurstkuche and the family-run Jimmy's Urban Bar & Grill both threw in the towel (although you can still grab our choice for Best Hamburger, the Ditka Burger, at Jimmy's through Sunday).
