    Full of "street food" like bugs, dumplings, etc.
  • Stacy A.
    You can have some unique snacks like deep-fried scorpion or seahorse, but my favorite things were suannai (Old-style Beijing Yogurt) and tanghulu (traditional Chinese candied fruit).

    Everything is great here... super crowded during lunch rush but all the vendors are quick and attentive - plenty of variety to choose from, especially further away from main street!

    Bugs, scorpions, lizards. This place has all the weird food you came to China to try. Do not pay asking price for anything!! If you pay 1/2 you're still paying much more than you would anywhere else.

    Scorpion is terrifying there, for the first time I've ever seen a scorpion in a frying pot.

    Come here for a snack. There are slightly more normal things to eat, but the best are the scorpions. The small ones are just crunchy, but the large ones are hard on the outside and soft on the inside

    Place for tourists to take pictures of scorpion, starfish and sea horse but not actually buying anything. Except if it's someone's bachelor party

    That's a very touristic place, but if you want to eat a spider, lizard, scorpion, starfish or seahorse: that's the best place.

    Small street food market along Wangfujing shopping distrct. Their specialties include fried scorpions and starfish. Be careful when taking pictures since some vendors don't appreciate it.

    At the end of the street a stall selling escargots, mussles, etc - big cockle was freaking RMB 36 EACH (rainy day RMB 18), not per serving! Total rip-off.

    Wangfujing is one of Beijing’s modern shopping streets. Ignore the hawkers selling novelty skewers of deep fried spiders and scorpions, and head to Haidilao in the Tianyingtai Department Store.

    I especially like the glass bottles painstakingly handpainted from inside the bottle (with an incredibly thin bent brush)!!!!
