A food stand vendor fans cooking fire as young man watches

A food stand vendor fans his smokey cooking fire as a young man in a white T-shirt watches from his side. The vendor is cooking satay, chunks of grilled meat on skewer sticks, which is a favored dish throughout Indonesia and the Malay world. The meat is generally served with white rice and a spicy ground peanut sauce.Night markets and street vendors flourish in Southeast Asia, where people take advantage of the cooler evenings to shop or dine out. Many fast, inexpensive, and delicious meals or snacks can be obtained along the roadsides in the evening after the sun sets.
