One of the best places our family went to during our winter trip to Beijing is the Wang Fujing night market.
The highlight of the place was all the street food! Most notably, these exotic food items which are a little bit pricey but quite worth it for the experience. They had a wide range of food items such as scorpions, tarantulas, moths, centipedes, snake meat, chrysali, and a lot more.
Case in point:
Now I know I haven’t posted in quite a while and I must admit, I am in semi-retirement mode from niche blogging. But when one gets to not only take pictures but TAKE A VIDEO of what has happened here, how could I resist posting it?
AND THUS FINALLY…
1. I made a mistake near the beginning – those aren’t mealworms, those are the chrysalis or the PUPA stage in the life-cycle of the moth. Yes, moth – not butterfly since like you, I love the pretty butterflies too. (But there’s no fault in eating an ugly old moth!)
2. CHECK OUT THAT WHITE GUY TAKING A VIDEO OF ME. He also asked me if it was good afterwards. Must have thought I was crazy or something. I must say, he’s a fair judge of character.
3. The the good-looking dude who looks like me? That’s my older bro. The woman screaming YUCK in the background? (while she videotaped it) that’s my mom. She must be so proud of her sons. LOVE YOU MA!
