I was walking through Jakarta's Grodok district. This is Chinatown. But it wasn't as Chinatown-ish as I'd imagined. Nor was he subjected to the rough waters of Chinese characters. There were normal stalls in the alley and locals were shopping. Even the characters on the stalls were not in Chinese characters but in the alphabet.
There were stalls on both sides of the alley I was walking down. At the stall to the right, on a protruding plank, a man was struggling with the large dough. I didn't know what the dough was for, but whatever it was for, it seemed like it could be made in large quantities.
On the other hand, a stall on the left was selling snacks. In front of the stall stood a family accompanied by an abaya-clad mother, and the girl was pondering what to eat.
This alley was lined with a number of stalls other than the stalls in this photo. The city of Jakarta, like other Southeast Asian countries, is full of street food. If you feel a bit peckish in the middle of your walk, you won't have any trouble getting something to eat.
