City of People # 19: Tukang Kue Bandros (Bandros Cake Vendor)



Kue bandros (bandros cake) is a traditional Indonesian cake. It's made of grated coconut, coconut milk, rice flour and a little bit of salt. The cake is usually sold by a street vendor like this, and is usually eaten for breakfast or at tea time in the afternoon.

Beautiful B&W portrait.I wonder whether you were close to him, or far with a zoom. Did he know you were taken a picture of him? He looks so natural occupied.

It must be wonderful to live here where a delicacy such as this can be made and sold before your eyes.

Nifty street scene. I can't tell whether he is actually making and baking (cooking?) the cakes on site. I'll take Daryl's piece - one is never enough...

Sounds yummy! We have lots of "kakanin" made of sticky rice and coconut too. Lovely portrait of the street vendor, Eki.
