Although the man in the Benz seemed not affiliated to any restaurant as far as I could gather from the short, translated conversation, I decided what the heck, I'd buy some if he'd let me...and he did!
I assumed the food would be not very good (and might I add potentially deadly or just plain bad). In any case, it was worth trying.
At plain sight, the food looked ok. I mean, the combo seemed a little odd: upper left corner, tomatoes and eggs, upper right corner, plain rice, bottom left corner: beef and green peppers, and bottom right corner, plain beef.
I assumed because of the understanding I have of AUTHENTIC chinese food having barely any spices in them, this was not going to be very good. On the contrary, it was some of the BEST chinese food I have ever had! The eggs aside, the flavors in both variations of beef were just amazing. The one with the peppers was slightly spicy, with flavors of ginger and other spices. The plain beef was anything but plain: a mixture of spices I had never tried and sadly couldn't recognize in case I wanted to emmulate the seasoning, softness unbelievable for beef.
I sat there in shock as I couldnt' believe my taste buds, and before it was too late, I ran outside to tell them in whatever motion and expression combination I could, how good this was. To which the man laughed and responde by giving me a free soda.
All and all, I have to say I am happy to have dared to buy food from this srtange situation, and I'm hoping to see the mysterious car once again, carrying some deliscious surprise food box.
