“Tahu Gejrot” vendor crossing the main street at Thamrin while balancing the weight of a small kitchen on his shoulder. Everything he needed to make the dish; small plates, spoons, forks, small mortar to smash combination of garlic+chillies+salt+brown sugar+soy sauce+vinegar to a cohesive sauce for the sliced Tahu Pong (tofu that have been deep fried long time to create a hollow center so it will absorb more sauce). Gejrot similar with Smashed.
I found this “Tukang Sayur” cart, not far from a wet market. The merchant was went out to the market to buy more daily produce. He stuffed his cart up with the popular items his clientele asked for, with hope they will buy all of it from him.
It was cold saturday morning. Even though this “Bubur Kacang Ijo” merchant fixed his cart in front of forbid-to-stop sign, not lessen a motor cycler to stop and bought the warm-sweet-savoury green bean porridge for cheap and filling breakfast.
This time was Sunday morning, and the traffic regulations didn’t mean anything to most Jakartans at this day.
Wonder what he sells? He delivered hot beverages accessible for anyone in the street. The thermos filled with hot water, when his customer chose any sachet of instant powder they liked (coffee+sugar, coffee+sugar+creamer, cappuccino) or just plain tea bag, then he poured hot water with it in a plastic disposable cup.
