On September 1st, it was a rare day of rest. Chen Shi took Lin Dongxue out early in the morning and walked all the way through the streets. They walked among the rows of old houses in the city.
Lin Dongxue complained, "Where are we going so early in the morning? You’re acting so mysterious and not telling me.”
"We'll be there soon. We'll be there soon." Chen Shi continued to act secretive.
"I don't know how many times you’ve said that."
Things took a new turn and there was light at the end of the tunnel. There was actually a soup noodle restaurant in an alleyway. Although it was 7:00 in the morning, the store had no empty seats. Most of them were retired, elderly people. On the bench out front, the pot gurgled with steam and hot red peppers floated inside.
"After all that, it was to eat breakfast here?" Lin Dongxue didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
"This noodle store has tasty food. There is no other place in Long'an City who can make this kind of soup base. I guarantee you’ll remember it for a lifetime after trying it once.”
"It seems very spicy." Lin Dongxue glanced at the big pot.
After entering the store, they waited for a while before they got a seat. Chen Shi asked for two bowls of beef meatball noodles. Although they ordered it to be mild, when they looked at it, it was full of red hot chili oil. Chen Shi said, “Please go ahead.”
Lin Dongxue picked it up suspiciously and took a bite. She choked a little from the chili oil and coughed while covering her mouth for a very long time. She said, "This soup..."
"It’s a bit bitter and it’s too spicy."
"The addictive stuff is a bit uncomfortable at the first bite. After you eat this whole bowl, sweat it out, and then have a bowl of iced mung bean soup, it’ll be like bliss." Chen Shi picked up a beef ball, closed his eyes, and chewed it. "Ah, it's delicious! This store was closed for a few years. It only reopened in these last couple of days. There are a lot of customers who come here. I heard about it from the passengers I drove around and came here to admire it. I was instantly captivated."
"I don't think it's that delicious."
"This is a matter of taste..."
After eating a bowl, Lin Dongxue was sweating. Chen Shi ordered two iced mung bean soups. After drinking the mung bean soup, their hot and spicy mouths cooled down at once. It did really feel refreshing.
Chen Shi took out a small bottle and filled it with a little soup when no one was watching.
Lin Dongxue asked, "What are you doing? Are you taking it back to study?"
"I made a bet with Old Peng. He said there might be opiates inside which made it so addictive to eat. I’m taking it back for him to test.”
"Captain Peng has also been here?"
"He came here a couple of days ago with me."
"What?!" Lin Dongxue was surprised. "You came with him first before bringing me?"
"Is this je
