Beijing, craving for snacks by Ilona Chin
To all the food dare devils, who are willing to try anything, Beijing is the answer to all prayers. I always say that Chinese people eat everything that fits on a stick. When you walk down Wang Fu Jing food street and you gaze into all the little stands that are filled with scorpions, cow stomach, BBQ gizzards, snake skin and much more you will discover that there isn’t anything that doesn’t fit on a stick, even the inedible. Before you fall in total shock by “the horror to your eyes, the killer for your stomach” story I must reassure you that this city is a food diamond in the price range for all. I have nibbled on a scorpion or two myself, but I am not adventurous when it comes to food at all. You don’t have to be! When it comes to good quality food in Beijing it’s present and deliciously affordable.
