Beijing market: grilled starfish, goat lungs and red peppers, dog brain soup and more!

All eyes are on Beijing right now, for obvious reasons, and today I stumbled upon a blog post which caught my eye.   The Chinese are renowned for eating pretty much anything, and so it was interesting to be able to see pictures of a market offering everything from starfish grilled in shark oil to scorpion brochettes.   I’m fascinated with tasting different things – particularly items I’ve never previously tried – but I think with one or two of these I might have to politely decline.   For the full ensemble, with pictures, see Brain Goodbye.

  1. This made me laugh because it’s quite funny how people can find the food of other cultures revolting. But it might actually taste nice!

    I’ve eaten a few odd things on my travels – it gets easier after a few beers! Ants are nice when deep fied in chilli and garlic, but I’m not so keen on grasshopper. Mind you, I didn’t realise you were supposed to ‘peel’ them first! Yuk.
