Tube grubs

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. Although Joseph Sisko said he would have to cook them, 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 Edit

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

Meal worms, Conspiracy

Food offered to Captain 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.
