With a raring appetite to taste something exotic (and probably,weird to many), the few of us headed over to Wangfujing market to savour the selection of exotic street snacks, in particular the weird and bizarre. BBQ chicken guts such as the gizzard, liver, heart, as well as an array of deep fried creatures such as the scorpion, starfish, cocoon, crickets, lizards (yucks) etc… u name it, they got it. It’s China after all. A year back, Shermin babe and I had our first taste of the “weird stuff” in BKK when we dug our way into a bag of fried crickets. This time round, JW, Wilson, Serene & I were slightly more daring as we had our first bite of the scorpions which were still very much alive and kicking before they were fried. Tasty? Well, let’s just say they were crunchy and salty.
An oasis for all shoppers, Wangfujing is a shopping belt that is bustling and hustling with many activities. Some Singaporeans might even find it their 2nd home due to its similarity to our Orchard road. Alas, due to the lack of time, we only had about 2 hours to spare (and we spent the bulk of it at the Wangfujing Snack Street, for obvious reasons) before we had to make a dash to the airport. Home Sweet Home.
