Laxative is a type of drugs to induce bowel movements or to simulate the evacuation of faeces (stool in layman’s term). In other words it is taken to treat constipation.
Sometimes, you can find natural laxative in your everyday consumption. You will find it more frequent if you visit unhygienic restaurants. If you are not aware, the frequency increases if you are inChina.
Mom once told me, “Dirty Eat, Dirty Fat” (this is a direct translation from Hokkiens means eat anything that is clean or dirty and you will still survive). So, without hesitation, I hop into this restaurant.
This is one of the many seafood restaurants inDalian. Dalian is another province in China which is famous with seafood such as abalone, sea cucumber, scallops etc. So, don’t be surprise if you see many seafood restaurants over here.
Is this one of the famous one over here? I don’t think so although the waitresses keep claiming that they are the best! This kind of hype is very common due to the local competition or I called it “Just another marketing gimmick”.
I did not order seafood because I do not want to get slaughter for no reason. I ordered seaweed with potatoes and cabbage with rice noodles instead. Although I tried to avoid seafood, it seems like every dishes over here taste slightly fishy.
Generally, the food is not very impressive. So, why I write about it? Well, I just like to give you a feel about what are the local food looks like here.
Wait a minute, when I say the food is not very impressive, I am not 100% honest. When I said I did not order seafood, I am not 100% honest too. I did order seafood… An Abalone Rice..
With only about RMB 35 (approx. RM 17), You get the whole abalone + broccoli + rice, quite a good deal and taste scrumptiously delicious. Is it genuine abalone? It looks like real to me, but who cares, as long as it is edible and cheap, right?
Now, comes the crust of the whole post, did I get stomachache or diarrhea after that? The answer is NO! This is because of my long years of practicing my stomach. Generally my stomach is tallied for harsh environment . What about yours?
