About Don Bugito

Don Bugito is an edible insect street food project based in San Francisco. We offer rather unusual but tasty creative foods inspired by Mexican pre-Hispanic and contemporary cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. We believe in the future of edible insects as a smart answer to the existing demand for and shortage of high- protein foods on the planet.

Edible insects are popular among many cultures around the world. In Mexico, for instance, insects are delicacies and are consumed by both average folks in the countryside and customers at upscale restaurants in the cities.

Don Bugito is thrilled to be able to share new versions of these classic foods with an American audience as well as support a healthier world by providing a sustainable, ecological food.

Don Bugito is interested in reviving old cultural traditions as well as increasing the popularity and use of ingredients native to the American continent.
