There is a new ‘angkringan’ cafe at Wijaya Park, Jl Wijaya, Kebayoran, South Jakarta. Its name is TKP. This angkringan is run by my bestfriends from Yogyakarta, Mas Deny Triyono and Mas Pratomo Nugroho. Deny Triyono is a copywriter and has ever been one of my blog article at : https://zakarialantangs.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/deny-lou-triyono/ . Pratomo Nugroho is a creative designer in Fortune.
Angkringan is a kind of traditional cafe. The word angkringan means a place where the customers’ foot could be put on the long chair or on a wide mat. Angkringan is traditionally and commonly as a “social media” or public sphere where citizens can buy food and drink as well as hanging out with their friends or even more socializing with other customers as citizens. The seller can sometimes be becoming an active listener or even more a kind of moderator to trigger a theme of discourse for others whom eat and drink at the angkringan. Socializing in a togetherness is the nuance of angkringan.
