If the thought of munching down on some lambs penis for dinner gets you going, then I’ve got a trest for you! Donghuamen night market is the pimp daddy of all weird street food, with starfish, spiders, bees, dog, ostrich and centipedes all on the menu. Yum.

eating lambs penis, aaaaagh

This is the second time I’ve been here, so I promised myself I wouldn’t eat any crazy stuff but peer pressure, macho bullsh*t rendered my promises redundant and before long I was shoving stuff in my face with vigour.

The night market, at errmmm.., night

I started off easily on the starfish, it tasted ok although not much food there. I ramped it up to the ostrich after that, it was delicious. Then came the money shot – lambs penis and lambs testicles. Yum Yum. The mental anguish a guy goes through when chomping down on chilli-covered, grilled testicles is difficult to convey, but rest assured it messes with your head. The texture is exactly how you would imagine, let’s just leave it at that.

  1. Starfish! Ha ha, I had no idea people ate those. What was the flavor of that like?

    Man, brave soul you are. I might have been able to eat it if I didn’t see the balls and rod prior to grilling.
