For enjoying night ambiance of the city with affordable dinner menu, people may choose to buy foods from street stalls. In Indonesia, especially in Java area, people can have angkringan or wedangan. Meanwhile, in Japan, people have yatai. Both angkringan and yatai offers their food by wooden moveable cart.
Now, in Jakarta, people can experience the yatai moment with its iconic red lanterns in Tanpopo Menteng. Several wooden carts are available to provide various kinds of Japanese foods. People may choose authentic Japanese foods from ramen, gyudon, to oden. To experience more alive dinner, people may pick yakiniku in which they grill and flavor the meat by themselves. Generally, the price is more affordable than the Japanese foods sold in Restaurant.
