Wangfujing 王府井 is one of the famous local snack street and night market, located in Dongcheng District, Beijing, China. Since the middle of the Ming Dynasty there have been commercial activities in this place. In the Qing Dynasty, ten aristocratic estates and princess residence were built here, soon after when a well full of sweet water was discovered, thereby giving the street its name "Wang Fu" (princely residence), "Jing" (well). Many exotic foods are served on Wangfujing snack street. The majority of the main area is pedestrianized and very popular shopping place for both tourists and residents of the capital. It is anchored by large upscale shopping malls at each end of the pedestrian mall. The street is a shopper's paradise, filled with shops selling paintings and traditional Chinese arts and crafts, trendy boutiques and upscale chain stores as well as restaurants serving everything from McDonald's cuisine to Peking duck.

There’s a row of unusual food stalls, an array of Chinese food delicacies are on display with people bustling around to experience some new tastes. Items such as sheep's particular parts, offal soup, deep fried crickets, centipedes, silk worms, scorpions and lizards are available to eat on a stick. There are also the more widely recognised Western foods such as spring rolls, dumplings, crab cakes and candy fruit. All stalls display their food selections in both Chinese (Mandarin) and English. The food is displayed raw and can be deep fried in a large Wok upon request. It’s not a very authentic Beijing experience, but the vendors take great glee in persuading foreigners to try such delicacies as scorpion on a stick.
