A new angkringan in front of my house….
Mrs. Esti, that is her angkringan.
Hmm, by the way… what is angkringan ?
I make this definition ( if you have any suggest, would you like to share it in comment 🙂 )
“Angkringan is javanesse mini cafe with cheap price “
Well, let start it!
You’ll never meet any angkringan in Indonesia, except you stay in Java, especially in Yogyakarta and Central Java. This is the place where angkringan culture begin. Recently, I have found angkringan in West Java too…
2. Mini Cafe
It’s only like small house cart, it may contain no more than 8 adult…
Angkringan’s offers are :
a. kindness, hospitable, friendly and polite service…
b. No time limitation. Just come, talk and share with other customers without feel worry you’ll be forced to away…
c. very real social network… In Angkringan nobody care who you are and your social status. Just enjoy it….
3. Cheap Price
Yogyakarta’s nick name is student city, cause of a lot of universities and school here. And angkringan in yogyakarta became famous cause its cheap, its student price!
Angkringan’s Menu :
a. Nasi Kucing (Cat Rice)
It is the most populer angkringans menu. Cat Rice? Soundly weird… Yeah,it is a mini package rice, named like this cause of the very litle portion, cat portion! The price is not more than Rp 700 (1$ ~ Rp 10000, imagine how cheap!). But it will be very delicious when you eat it with tempe, chicken sate, bandeng fish, etc.
b. Susu Jahe (Ginger Milk)
Almost of angkringan open in night, wish a glass of hot drink could warm the cool night…
Of course it sells common drinks like tea, lime and coffee too.
Don’t know how to translate gorengan in english… Hmm, how about : fries snack ? Hahaha, whatever it is, if you never taste it, then you should 😛
d. Sate (Chicken Stuff)
Sate is small pieces of meat roasted on skewer. It can be chicken head, heart, intestine, bustard eggs, etc. Don’t you know that sometimes we should forget about fat and calories and get cheers with other people 🙂
Do you have other information about angkringan? Share with me 🙂
