Dong Hua Men, Beijing - Bizarre Food Market

This is the place where you can try the different strange food that a small percentage of Chinese eat as delicacies.

From Scorpions, crickets, centipedes, small shark, snake, spiders, silk worm and many others, you can try the one you think is the "tastiest". The employs fry the "food" on the stick for you to taste.

This tradition to eat strange kinds of animals was born because of the shortage of agriculture resources, caused by the constant invasions on the China territory, so it was a plan B or C for the people to eat bugs. 

In my case I didn't eat the tarantula :) but there was people in my Portuguese group who did, I guess is the case to say "When in Rome be Roman".
