The Donghuamen Night Market — where a man can shout “Sheep testicles!” at the top of his lungs, without sounding like a total pervert. If you’re not totally into roasted critters or animal entrails, then there’s dimsum, soup and candied fruits as well, in this festive strip of food stalls just at the north end of Wangfujie Street.

Of course, the perfect ending to an adventurous dinner -- Gambai!
