    Indonesian Food Carts

    Now one of the things that i miss abt bkk is the easy availability of food on the streets (particularly moo ping, being a muslim nation there aint much pork here! ) but anyway they have food carts that these guys move around much the same as bkk.

    different times of day for different foods and each type of food has a different sound to attract you attention and so u know what they are selling, i found out not so long ago that the guy that screams out "ssssssssaaaaaaaaaaatttttttttaaaaaaaaaaaay" sells satay, funny really!

    anyway here he is...




    putra malam = night boy - i think that is not exactly polite more of a double meaning really, but i wasnt gonna ask him abt that - i just wanted a plate of chicken satay. unlike bangkok they dont precook them - they start out raw - so he has to fan the coals like buggery for about 10 minutes to cook it properly.



    beginning to look good. u can get them wrapped in paper, but since this was out the front of my house i brought him a plate of mine (the maid will wash it anyway)

    now to make the sauce, lots of oil, some chilli, some other stuff....



    then i ordered some longton - glutinous rice cooked into mush inside a bananna leaf, he chopped it all up - satay and then a sprinkle of dried onion on top.



    doesnt look so good with the flash, ah well too late cos i already scoffed them down, hope i dont have the shits later tonight....



    and enjoyed them on my front step while posting shite on TD.




    its night so here is the

    I quite regularly buy food off the carts here, and my wife buys those prepared curries and things that come in little plastic bags from the nearby markets.
    Never had a ploblem with them since I lived here.
    I'm not sure I'd be as confident in Indonesia though.
    Please do inform us if you end up with a case of the screaming trots Willy.

    I'm a bit jealous KW, I love Indo sate, it has a better flavour and jucier than the Thai stuff.
    BTW you have the same chairs as I.

    actually good point i'd forgotten that. I do prefer Sate Kamping or goat satay's but i can only seem to find chicken with the mobile vendors. There is a few roadside stalls about 1 km from my house - but they get crazy busy and are more for a meal than just a snack at 8 or 9 pm.

    Of course they are, in fact most would know I'm in town next week as well.....
