Beijing snack on a cart

Qianmen 前门
Archery Gate

Above and below, a very special kind of crisp snack. They are like a pretzel, but they come in all sorts of flavors. Tianjin makes these a specialty but there are several shops in downtown Beijing that carry a wide variety. They also come is small stick sizes that are my favorites. A small bag of sesame sticks will last several days as quick snacks when traveling.
