Last night over a family dinner for CNY we had snake. So it wasn't like in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom where a snake was cut open and eaten uncooked. It was more like a chicken soup with lots of different things in it including snake meat. I can't say that I didn't like it since I couldn't really tell what was in the soup except the chicken broth and pieces of chicken and other stuff.
Did I mention that while we were in Beijing we had camel. Nothing interesting, just camel meat in some kind of sauce with vegetables. We didn't know we were eating it until the waitress told us all the dishes which happened to be all cold. Very chewy but the flavor was unmemorable.
Never got a chance to have scorpian or any of the interesting meals that they serve on a snack street in Beijing, but I'm not that adventureous.
