I don't particularly like scorpions. But equally I don't know that I dislike them enough to see them impaled on a squewer in a row still wriggling. There were rows of these scorpions on sticks at this market – next to rows of 'here's one I prepared earlier ones' that were already crispy. I also saw lizards on a stick. And deep fried crickets. And centipedes, and sheep's penis and other such delicacies and dainty snacks. Luckily I also saw spring rolls, dumplings, ribs, rice, noodles and all sorts of more familiar meat. Some of it was cooked, some of it they'll let you pick out and will dump in a wok to order.

Finish off with some mini apples on a stick – like a tiny toffee apples.
