Eat a scorpion in LijiangChina is a paradise for foodies. I try everything I'm offered and my repertoire includes many things that most Americans would cringe at eating.
Top of the list, however, is a scorpion, which I indulged in on a visit to the Old City of Lijiang.
...crunchy, salty, prickly, and once calm your reptilian brain enough to be okay with the fact you just put a poisonous insect in your mouth, quite tasty.
The city is a bit too crowded for my taste, but it's a great starting point for a trek to the famous hike trough Tiger Leaping Gorge.
