the kolonel's secret recipe
Bird's Nest, Ginseng, Golden Mushrooms, Red Dates, Sea Cucumber. Everything herbal and natural is what you'll find in a chinese medicinal shop. In the old days, these shops were in the older parts of the city. All the drawers and shelves were made of wood. This, coupled with the various roots and herbs gave off a musky yet comforting scent. Whatever you bought was wrapped in waxed brown paper. You'd be hard pressed to find such shops these days. As you can see here, glass, plastic and steel have replaced wood. Yes yes, save the trees and all that but the bloody fluorescent lights!
