Tube grubs

Tube grubs.

Tube grubs are a larva-like organism eaten live as a delicacy by the Ferengi. It seems that, traditionally, tube grubs are to be served chilled (DS9: "The Nagus").

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")

Contrary to human foods, tube grubs are preferred when cold, before they become 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")

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. (DS9: "Blaze of Glory")


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

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