RE: Design and Architecture of Orizuru Ramen Restaurant

hello @storiesoferne thank you for stopping by and sorry if I responded to this comment too long.
I don't think this is a trend. I see two possibilities. First, the business owner's lack of confidence in his culinary business. Business owners may want to create a Japanese restaurant or coffee shop, but are afraid they won't sell well so try to combine the two. Usually, many coffee shops in my city are like this. The concept of a coffee shop but provides a variety of main course food menus, sometimes I don't even see people drinking coffee. The second reason, maybe (just an assumption) is the collaboration of two business owners. In this era, we don't need to compete, it's better to collaborate, right?

I don't need to pay attention to other people, the reason I don't want to sit there is because I experienced it myself. when sitting on a chair with gravel floor like that, my chair position is unstable and my butt move too much. My friend thought, I had hemorrhoids at that time.

Oh wow! Those are smart insights you got there @isdarmady! The lack of culinary expertise and a probable partnership between restaurant owners - 2 possible scenarios indeed. Whichever way it might be, this is clear proof of Indonesia's market situation. So naturally, as a practical course of action, entrepreneurs try to be flexible with the ever-changing economic climate. 👍

On the other hand, I could imagine your struggle and frustration when sitting on chairs above peebles, stones, or raw gravel. Isn't it embarrassing? lol 🤣 Anyway, experience was your best teacher. Hence, you already know what to avoid next time. 😁

that's really true @storiesoferne
Business owners must be flexible, and I also observe that business actors in Indonesia like to create a food and beverage business with the feel of a "Coffee Shop" not the food concept. Importantly, there is always an espresso machine there. I think it doesn't matter, I feel that the competition from these business actors has created many new cafe or coffee shop concepts in my city.
