The road that had been straight has suddenly taken a right-angle turn, as if it had suddenly changed direction. I could have kept going straight, but the road was getting narrower and narrower, and it was being sucked into an alleyway.
The road turned so steeply that the flow of people there was stagnant. There are Becak parked on the side of the road, and people were hanging out. Fish and people hang out in the same place. The flow was smooth, but it turned out to be stagnant.
On the glass of the stall was written "BASO" (sometimes written as "BAKSO"), which are meatballs made from minced beef, and are a common menu item at both food stalls and restaurants in Jakarta. At the restaurant I visited before, I saw a banner in the back of the restaurant that said "BASO".
Meatballs called "bakso" are often served with noodles and wontons. Here they seem to be served with the white object seen on top of the stall, probably rice noodle. Where the stream is a bit stagnant, many people may want to fill their small stomachs.
