Beijing Food Stalls off Wangfujing Street

Wangfujing Street is a few blocks from Tianenmen Square in the center of Beijing, and is home to one of the world's largest and most intriguing collections of edibles. Scorpions, starfish, and squid are all here as well as skewers of bug bites sure to give most westerners the willies.

I enjoyed the BBQ Squid on a stick and even a fried scorpion which had a sort of nutty crunch, but passed on the much larger and juicier beatles that were also common.
