Senang Sekali! Warteg Buka…Plus Plus – FOUR Reasons to be Cheerful!


The warteg is open once more! 

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • I’d travelled all the way up to Citraland, got some bread etc., then, having purchased gado2 at the place I mentioned the other day (sadly sans that beauty who’d served me previously – looked her mum was on duty today!) I hopped an angkot back towards HQ.
  • When I passed my culinary nirvana, sealed up tighter than a minority house of worship in Bekasi since nearly two weeks ago…WOW!

 It was open, signs of life within!

So out of the angkot and in I went, to be greeted like a prodigal by the proprietrix, though it was she who had gone far away, now returned from distant Tegal.

And not only she – there are THREE new waitresses too, all of them, when I walked in, busily cleaning up to start a fesh year of cooking tonight, serving tomorrow.

  • I’ll miss the other gals, now deposited back in their kampungs, somewhere around that city by the sea, but it’s always fun to make new friends too.

The Javanese teens watched me warily, astounded, maybe a trifle alarmed, at a bule on the premises. However, no doubt the good lady who employs them will have, by now, explained that I’m a regular, apart from the lunchtime crowd, probably one of their best customers!

I wonder if they will emulate their predecessors and ask for English classes while serving up cap cay, perkadel, tahu, etc.
