Small food stalls fill the narrow so-called “snack alley” that springs of the stopping street of Wangfujing. Here you find the usual snacks that Chinese just love, like BBQ sticks, pig stomach and candied fruit, but the main attraction are the exotic sticks. We are talking insects, worms and, even weirder, seahorses and starfish. The big black scorpions go down well, but the starfish is extremely bitter!
We suggest you try the stick-scorpions at least for bragging rights! It’ll be an experience to remember, and to take pictures of!
