Right next to TieXi Guangchang metro station, the lights flash bright at this bustling market but it’s the items for sale that truly dazzle any daring foodie. The weird and wonderful snacks are the main draw on this 1.8km-long stretch of gastronomic adventure.

Here’s our favourite food picks at Xingshun Market:

Tofu: You’ll find it all forms but the stinky version is the one to try – just follow your nose to find it.

Scorpions: All kinds of insects are served sizzled to a crisp, but go for the king of them all, the scorpion. Truth be told, if you take a bite with your eyes closed, they taste just like ordinary crisps.

Larvae: Dare you! After all, what’s more Insta-ready?!

Fruit Skewers: Sugar-glazed snacks on sticks, these sweet skewers are the ultimate palate cleanser.

What Else: Not to worry - there’re plenty of delicious options for less intrepid foodies. From craft beers to beef, lamb and pork skewers, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
