It is dusk at the night market and people are gathering to eat and relax. The air hums with chatter and the whirr of generators. Stalls are piled with shocking-pink dragon fruit and salak in their snakeskin casings. Sticky rice is unwrapped from palm leaf parcels. A man deftly folds an oversized pancake as it sizzles in hot oil, cooking as street theatre. One thing you don’t want to miss are the fried bananas in their crisp batter jackets. Eat hot from the pan, as you would in the market.</
