      slices of drying dung..
    by peitsing

this restaurant of a small hotel serves yummy food.. however, the followings may be the reasons why the food taste so "yummy" & distinctive:
1. the "chunks" of "cow dung" being dried just outside its window (pic 1)
2. the dirt-encrusted tableware
3. the "recycled detergent container" used to contain take-away food

However, the above are parts and parcels of a backpackin trip and they are what makes a trip or an experience unique!! My suggestion, bring some wet tissues, ignore the aromatic smell across the window and do not take-away food!

Bon Apetite...
