Beijing in Red

Above, kids at the forbidden city. I think the emperor didn't want to let the kids in. With all those concubines, they must have made a lot of noise. Below, delicious scorpions, fried birdlets and other delicacies.We stuck to less exotic snacks, although we threw in a freaky bun for good measure. It failed the yummy test.Also failing was the wine-flavoured pocky, despite the poem.The hanging ribs with mushrooms and sticky rice were the winner. Since we did not realize you had to order by piece, it was a bit awkward to eat the lone rib.
