Saturday morning, I was rushing for a meeting in the central of Jakarta. When I got off from a public bus to change to another public transportation, I saw this Tukang Bubur Kacang Ijo (a street vendor who sells mung bean porridge and also black glutinous rice porridge). Well, I actually already had my breakfast - a cup of coffee with a slice of sponge cake, and the time was ticking, but still I could not resist to have a bowl of mung bean porridge and glutinous black rice porridge with coconut milk :)
Mung Bean is known as "Kacang Hijau" in Indonesia. It literally means "Green Bean". "Kacang" is bean and "Hijau" is green but for the word "Hijau", sometimes pronounces as "Ijo".
