Eating a Tarantula at Beijing’s Snack Street

Eating a Tarantula at Beijing’s Snack Street

Walking through Wangfujing snack street on my first visit to Beijing in 2013 I cringed at the thought of eating a cricket or a scorpion and even more so a tarantula. I watched my friend eat a scorpion, millipede and a tarantula with him saying that the tarantula was the best out of the 3. Needless to say I didn’t believe him. I have since eaten a cricket, or 3 in Siem Reap so when I booked my flights to China for Christmas just gone I said I WILL BE EATING A TARANTULA THIS TIME and I did, on New Years Eve. Check out the video here:

What strange things have you eaten on your travels? Would you walk through the night markets eating a tarantula?
