Bugs on a Stick - Yummy! 751

At this food stall just off of Wanfujing Street in Beijing you can enjoy fried scorpions, grasshoppers, and other bugs on a stick which are usually deep fried. I tried the scorpions which tasted sort of nutty and crispy.

China takes food *very* seriously, and most regions have a cuisine they are noted for throughout China. Beijing is more noted for duck and meats, where in Shanghai soups and dumplings are more traditional fare. Hong Kong? Try the world's best Dim Sum.
