Wangfujing's infamous night market is worth visiting for the photo ops alone. Rows of stalls are replete with edible creepy crawlies: scorpions, starfish, seahorses, silk worms, lizards—you name it, they'll put it on a stick and deep-fry it. Thankfully, there are regular lamb and beef chuanr (skewers), as well as more conventional snacks for the less adventurous.
