Jl. Pintu Besar Selatan III: A Culinary Adventure in Jakarta

I took a morning walk toward Jakarta Kota Station and this journey took me to a small street or alley that is quite well known in the Glodok. Yes, the name of this small street is Jl. Pintu Besar Selatan III or this alley is widely known as Gang Gloria. The name of Gang Gloria was obtained because there was a Super Market, namely Gloria with the blue goose logo. Unfortunately, Gloria Super Market was burned down in 2009, so the building should be destroyed.

Entering this alley, we are greeted by the snacks seller such as nuts, candy, or sweets. After that, you will find a variety of food vendors. However, for the followers of Islam who want to eat here, you should ask whether the food sold here are in line with Islamic teaching. However, there are quite a lot of types of food that contain pork that sold here.
