Chinese cuisine has been known as one of the most diverse and most definitely, one of the most scrumptious cuisines in the world. Ranging from assorted steamed dimsum to the well-known Peking duck and then to unconventional twists to seafood, the Chinese cuisine certainly has something for anyone that will delight their taste buds.

All over Beijing, China's burgeoning capital, you can go on a food crawl and indulge in all sorts of culinary delights that this city has to offer. One of such places is actually called Ghost Street.

One hundred and fifty restaurants can be found in Ghost Street.

Its Chinese name is 'guije', which comes from the broken Mandarin usually spoken by tourists hailing from the West. It sounds exactly like its English counterpart, 'ghost' and spans from the east to the west; covering the entire commercial center of Donmizhen to Beixingquiao.

Though there are many restaurants to choose from, the specialty is something that they do have in common: seafood - the spicy lobster, to be exact.

Harry Readhead of Metro chronicled his scorching encounter of Beijing's incredibly spicy lobster.

Aside from the lobsters, he and his girlfriend also tried kung pao chicken, rice, some duck, vegetables, kidney beans and a couple of bottles of Yanjing beer when they ate at Huda restaurant.

He muses, "The six lobsters arrived topped in chili, and in a swimming pool of red liquid, all of it steaming ominously. We - armed to the teeth in matching bibs and transparent gloves - were as prepared as we could be, but we may as well have been going into battle with an accordion."

While other fares can be sampled there in Ghost Street, many tourists still prefer to try the spicy lobster which makes this place even more popular to tourists and foodies alike.

If you're on the lookout for food that's extremely hot, then make sure to try out Beijing's spicy lobster because it is certainly off the charts.
