Tube grubs

Tube grubs were a larva-like organism eaten live as a delicacy by the Ferengi.

Contrary to Human foods, tube grubs were preferred cold, before they became warm. Ishka offered to make tube grubs for Quark and even pre-chew them, when he visited her in 2373, but Quark stated he'd never liked her grubs. (DS9: "Ferengi Love Songs")

Joseph Sisko considered offering Cajun-style tube grubs at his restaurant, Sisko's, in New Orleans in 2372, though he said he would have to cook them, a suggestion which Nog found odd. (DS9: "Homefront")

Benjamin Sisko once cooked pureed tube grubs for his son and Nog in late 2373. Jake enjoyed them until he found out what they were, subsequently vomiting into his napkin . (DS9: "Blaze of Glory")

Background information Edit

According to a line cut from DS9: "Family Business", tube grubs can also be served with millipede sauce.

Worms, 2364

Food offered to Captain Jean-Luc Picard

Tube grubs resemble the food eaten by Starfleet Command personnel while under the control of the neural parasites in TNG: "Conspiracy" because both props used mealworms.
