It seemed to me that the residential area continued to go on and on, but the end of the residential area abruptly came. As I was walking, I unexpectedly came to a big street with a bus lane. It was Hayam Wuruk Street that runs through the city of Jakarta from north to south.
There were a lot of cars on the big street and there are many big buildings on the big street. And underneath the buildings was a sidewalk that was recessed into the buildings. I'm not sure if these sidewalks are public or if they are owned by the building owners. I don't know which the truth is. But it is true that the sidewalk, which shelters from the wind and rain, is a good place to set up a stall.
There was a stall at the place where I was passing by. 'KETOPRAK' was written on the stall. Ketoprak is made by baking rice into a rice ball and mixing it with bean sprouts, coconut milk, and chilies. It's the local food here. The WIKI says it's a vegetarian dish because it doesn't use meat.
I saw a man working at a stall. He might be in the middle of making the dish because there was nothing placed in front of the customers at the table.
Ketoprak is a vegetarian dish from Jakarta, Indonesia, consisting of tofu, vegetables, rice cake, and rice vermicelli served in peanut sauce.
