Traditional market - Breakfast at local coffee shop - Chai Kue.
Pontianak, a city with no limit in food choices due to the mix of Chinese, Malay and native Dayak ethnic groups residents. The traditional market, an experience of sight, sound and smell, sells everything from fresh vegetables, fruits, spices, meat, fish to clothes and housewares. Mingle with the crowd as they do their morning trading, bargaining, and shouting. The local coffee shop is easily found in the city, as drinking coffee at 'kedai or warung' is a culture. No blended coffee here as they only serve black coffee or coffee with condensed milk, No espresso machine either as it is made by pouring boiled hot water over the coffee, sifting it and serving in 200ml glass or cup. To start the day, we will take you to 'Suka Hati' coffee shop where you can join the local folks in having breakfast and morning chit chat while sipping on the coffee accompanied by local sweet and savory snacks. Started in 1940s, the specialty snacks are banana or taro fritters with 'srikaya' spread and the shop opens early morning at 05:30 am! Beans are sourced locally from Kubu Raya, West Borneo- continue to Chai Kue Siam Ahin, a steam dim sum with jicama or kuchai onion as the filling. We will take you for lunch of your choice (food at an additional charge). Our guide will help you with the decision as this might not be an easy one to make. Angi ice cream served in coconut husk, with 6 flavors: strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, jack fruit, and durian (yes, the stinky fruit) will certainly be a perfect dessert.
