Where to get "bizarre foods"?

My family is looking to try new foods from around the world that are bizarre to most Americans.
We are looking for chapulines, alligator, frogs legs, etc. Any kind of crunchy (or can be cooked crunchy) insect, foreign fruits and veg, etc.
Does anyone have any clue where to either purchase these items to cook at home, or know of a place to go eat some? My kids are on a "try new things" kick, and I am happy to indulge their desires for new experiences.
