Dinner That Stings

Here’s an awesome pic taken by my colleague, Jori, of the (in)famous scorpion dish available at 全聚德 (Quan Ju De), a very famous Beijing duck restaurant with a branch in Shanghai.

The dish consists of approximately 10 deep-fried scorpions, disposed in a circle on shrimp crackers, around pieces of duck meat. The dish costs around $6 CAN, if I remember correctly. We went back last night, since Jori is going back to Montreal this weekend. Interestingly enough, the scorpions had people talking, but what really shocked them were the pickled duck tongues!
