Stumbled upon this smokey alley here while smelling around the eastern side of Tianamen Square for something to chow down . They call this place by a convenient name, SNACK STREET. Fine. Unfortunately, they don’t serve Krispy Kreme here. Only the not so conventional ones: arachnids, reptiles, pipe-fishes, bugs etc. In other words –the macabres.
“Welcome to Snack Street, tough guy!”
The Chinese has the final say: “Anything that walks, swims, crawls, or flies with its back to heaven is edible.” Take their word for it. It’s just a matter of tolerance level for what is “anything.”

Exotic is a subjective word. What is unusual to others may be conventional to some.

Didn’t even cared to know from what part of what being these white edibles are. But my local péngyou’s smile here looks suspicious. Now I believe, the best way to a man’s heart –depends on geography.
