Jakarta Street Food: Ice Cream


Indonesian ice cream isn’t the greatest in the world, but I’m putting it in here for completeness.  I guess the problem is the scarcity of dairy products, maybe they don’t use real cream but substitute coconut cream?  At least it’s icy.  I made the mistake once of buying from a Wall’s (Wall’s is a large local icecream maker) vendor and when I unwrapped it I found the icecream had already melted into a sodden mess.

In this clip, the surprisingly morose vendor demonstrates his call – a gong, which allows maids and small children time to gather their money and rush out to buy before he passes along.
