In Cirebon, just like in Jakarta, there are food stalls where there are people. The street I was walking along, Jalan Siliwangi, has a lot of traffic, so there were stalls everywhere. The stall in the photo is one of them along this street.
Just because there are stalls all over the place doesn't mean that all of them are busy with customers. Depending on the time of day, some stalls may be deserted, and the stall in this photo was empty when I walked by. The stall in the photo was empty when I walked by, not only of customers but also of the stall owner. Only a mobile stall was left on the roadside.
When I looked into the empty kitchen, I saw a covered pot with a container of forks, spoons, and straws next to it, and a wooden cutting board. On the cutting board were two kitchen knives, a knife and a fork, all neatly arranged. The owner of the stall seemed to be a meticulous person. He looked like he was ready to start cooking right now.
I could see the word "SAPI" written on the side of the stall, which means "beef" in Indonesian. I knew that this stall served beef dishes, but I didn't know what kind of dish it was because no one had bought it here and no one was cooking it.
