Kantin Pojok Permata
The concept of this eatery is similar to Warung Kopi Hijas in Pontianak, where the space is rent out to several different vendors and the seating area is shared. In Kantin Pojok Permata, the vendors that open in the morning are Bubur Ayam Pasundan, Lontong Sayur, drink station and Rumah Kopi Kawanua.
For drink, I ordered coffee with egg from the drink station. The female coffee brewer was very confused when I requested to mix the raw egg (telur ayam kampung) into the black bitter coffee. She said she had never witnessed anyone who drinks coffee this way.
Maybe I’ll try the coffee from Rumah Kopi Kawanua next time, which reminds me of Manado trip. Traditional coffee shops in Manado usually sell biapong (bakpao / steamed buns) along with coffee or tea.
Kantin Cahaya is located right the opposite of Kantin Pojok Permata, but Kantin Cahaya is solely owned instead of rented out to many vendors like Kantin Pojok Permata. The menu in Kantin Cahaya ranges from ready-to-eat food (prasmanan), nasi uduk, ketupat sayur, bubur ayam, and nasi tim. I ordered Bubur Ayam (Chicken Porridge). The porridge loses its rice texture.
