(Beijing’s Weird Food Street) ~ Donghuamen Night Market 北京东华门夜市


So we managed to stumble into this eccentric food market, dubbed by many visitors as the “Weird Food Street”, its actual name is the Donghuamen Market (北京东华门夜市), a market renowned for its strange assortment of goodies like scorpions and spiders on sticks and other oddities.

However, most citizens don’t just regularly snack on these expensive bugs despite popular western belief. IMG_2398

Because I’m not an adventurous eating, I ended buying this cute little ceramic bunny for 10 yuan *peace sign*

Cute little animal-themed buns. I would eat these, if they weren’t next to a stall of fried bugs  at this. IMG_2422 IMG_2423
