The stall I saw in the alley was selling tofu sweets

It was not very interesting to walk along the big street all the time, so I stepped into a side street and came across a nice alleyway. It was a narrow street that cars could not enter, stretching through a residential area. There were children playing around on the narrow street.

As I watched them absentmindedly, I saw a man walking towards me from the other side, pushing a mobile stall with an umbrella. The man was not shouting, but was simply pushing a mobile cart. Rather than selling, he seemed to be looking for a good place to do business.

As I got closer to the stall, I could read the words on the stall. It said "TAHU GEJROT", which meant tofu. I had just seen a tofu stall along the main street, but the stall I saw in the alley in the residential area was also a tofu stall. I hadn't really paid attention to it until now, but there are a lot of stalls here in Cirebon that serve dishes using tofu.

By the way, TAHU GEJROT is Cirebon's specialty, fried tofu with sweet spicy sauce. Sweet spicy sauce. As a Japanese, I'm not familiar with sweet tofu. The man pushing the mobile cart also had a grim look on his face, as if he could tell I was dubious.
