All of the food so far in Beijing has been excellent.
Last night I headed out with Laurence and we ran into the Dong Hua Men Night Market – which is renowned in Beijing.
There is a wide range of regional delicacies on sale – including lamb kebabs, pork and beef skewers and fruit.
Then there are the real specialties. In the interests of fairness – think how interesting pork scratchings and haggis are..
Starfish on a stick:
And roasted and fried scorpions, silkworm grubs and crickets:
Silkworm grubs. Crunchy on the outside, silky and velvety on the inside. That’s what my online gourmet reviewer said.
Scorpions. Crunchy with a bite. I made that one up.
Finally crickets. Fried and ready to go.
