No alcoholic drinks to anyone who comes to this restaurant by car

A restaurant’s own way of campaigning ‘don’t drink and drive’ on its alcoholic drinks menu.

Kedai Kopi Din Tokyo

image

This traditional coffee shop in Kota Bharu has nothing to do with Japan. Feels like the kopitiams in Singapore with its old town ambiance and good local coffee but instead of tables and chairs it has two long wooden benches for communal use, a ‘kopi bar’. I’ll never forget the very hospitable proprietor who handed 5 ringgit to my 8 yr old daughter as spontaneous gift. My total bill was I think 8 ringgit for 2 mugs of coffee and nasi berlauk.

Menu Miscellany

[Yogyakarta, Indonesia] Warung makan menu

Scrolling through my snapshots, I found several menu pictures which perhaps at that point in time struck me as something interesting to snap on.

[Yogyakarta, Indonesia] Here’s the warung place. I’d find this again just for their ayam goreng

I think the place and my ala carte eatables were quite interesting too that each experience merits preservation by means of a menu photograph.

[Tokyo, Japan] This is Tokyo so that’s the menu – that vending machine to prepay for one’s order. This menu machine will give you a sort of receipt to hand over to the one-man restaurant guy. Very efficient

[Tokyo, Japan] Restaurant counter where the guy (not visible in the picture) is preparing my prepaid ramen

image

[Makati, Philippines] Somewhere in Poblacion is this tiny Korean eating place managed by an ajumma who sits by the cash register table

image

[Makati, Philippines] The inside of Magpie’s menu. A picture menu is logical for a foreign restaurant

image

[Makati, Philippines] Magpie’s menu also in the wall with couple of magpies, a symbolic bird of South Korea

image

[Makati, Philippines] Beni’s Falafel menu of vegetarian, kosher, Israeli fare

[Makati, Philippines] Beni’s Falafel place

[Makati, Philippines] List of Puerto Rican viands with some background information written and printed in several pages of bond paper that are stapled together

image

[Makati, Philippines] Another page of Sofrito’s menu. I don’t have snapshot of the place but it’s a small one similar to Beni’s Falafel
