Mobile Stalls By The Wayside

Mobile stalls were placed on the roadside in a residential area

Since they are not employed by anyone, they are free to start and finish their work at any time of the day. That's probably why there were still mobile food stalls placed in the residential area of Jakarta. There was no one around the stall, which was placed on the side of the road, and it was quiet. Although it was past noon when I was walking around, it seemed that these stall owners were not yet ready to start working.

Of course, there are also stall owners working during the day, and while walking, I often see mobile stalls plying their trade in residential areas. As such people close their doors as night falls, the stalls that are now sitting quietly on the side of the road must take over and become active. In some places, it may be more profitable after dark.

In Indonesia, mobile food stalls are called kaki lima. Like the one in this photo, the stall has big wheels so that it can be moved easily. Because they are so light, they can be driven into a residential area to do business if there is a tight spot. They look like old-fashioned ramen stalls, which are rarely seen in Japan.
