    A staff brought me to a street food area near office for the first time, was impressed.

    [​IMG]

    Ordered a char-kway-teow and a char-mee for each of us - very strong wok taste, duck eggs instead of chicken egg add to the great taste and texture

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and with some satays - these are pork with black sweet sauce, tastes heavenly

    [​IMG]

    Chicken with peanut sauce

    Saw an interesting stall in Emporium Pluit called SisterS Crispy Pohpiah

    [video=youtube;qNRhjDneC2Q]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNRhjDneC2Q[/video]

    The stall
    [​IMG]

    The Prices
    [​IMG]

    The pack
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Taste not bad but then too much crisp absorbed the moisture so made it a little too dry, also the crisp is a little too much
    [​IMG]

    Interesting concept for the young they may enjoy the crisp but then not me

    Always amazes me cost of leaving in Jakarta can be so high yet many poor people struggling to make end meet. Had a simple prawn noodle that costs S$3.40 a bowl and its very common to find such prices in the market for a simple meal.

    However outside Jakarta prices are between 30-50% cheaper
