Exploring the exotic food market

When I was in Beijing, I did walk through this one food market nearby Wangfujing road, the infamous shopping place in the city. At first I thought it was some normal food hawkers selling some Chinese street food but as I get closer, they’re actually selling exotic food. When I say exotic, I mean things such as scorpions, snake meat, starfish, dog meat, centipede and many more that you would not imagine.

the market is more than 1km stretch

starfish or seahorse anyone?

There are lots of stalls there. The market was probably more than 1km long. I didn’t dare to try any of the food during my time there. If I did, there’s high possibility that I will throw up on the spot.

the picture says it all

some sort of worm fried with vegetables

I saw one group of western people challenging each other to try the exotic food. The first and second guy ate the silk worm and the seahorse. The last guy was forced to eat a sheep’s penis. *yucks!*

a sheep penis! damn!

the price list

There were also some Muslim stalls there which are selling lamb, beef and some other halal food but due to it is located nearby all the exotic food, I didn’t try it either.

For those who have the guts to try this bizarre type of food, make sure u visit this exotic food market when you’re in Beijing.
