I walked down a big street called Raya Mangga Besar street. There were a number of food stalls along the side of the street and I could see a few restaurants. If there is no place to eat, I am in trouble. But I am also in trouble even if there are too many choices. The situation was the latter. I was troubled about where I should eat at that time. I didn't know where to eat because I didn't know the area. So I had to rely on what I saw and felt with my own eyes.
After looking at several places to eat, I chose the one that was most crowded with locals. That was the restaurant in this photo. This restaurant was so crowded that it seemed to be popular with the locals.
Even though I chose the restaurant, but I was not sure what kind of dishes is served here. I observe other customers eating. Everyone was eating noodles. It seems that this is the place to eat 'Bakso', which is a kind of dumpling with noodles.
Despite the language barrier, I managed to order and wait for my noodles to come out. The restaurant was crowded with locals, and they did not give special treatment to foreigners, even if they could not speak the Indonesian language. The people working here were busy dealing with the customers who come in one after the other. I was left in a corner of the restaurant, anxious to see if I could order properly.
