Market Scene

4 Jun

Day 2 in Jakarta, I went to the local food market near my aunt’s house. The sun is always up around 6 AM, and by 7:30 the market buzzes with people shopping for their household’s meal ingredients.

One of the many snack options available, sold by the grams.

I think these are marinated chicken that you'd then fry at home.

    SO jealous! Tell us what ingredients you are picking up and what you are cooking…they all look so good and fresh!

      sorry, i didn’t reply as quickly… internet connection had been elusive for a couple of day.

      my aunt usually bought some tempeh, tofu, vegetables (bok choy or its cousins) — nothing too exotic. but my dad requested enoki mushrooms and some white floppy mushrooms (don’t know the name), and she also bought more of ready-made food for me to try.
