Why the Warung?The term warung, or waroeng (old spelling) simply denotes a wide category of small businesses, either a small shop or a small restaurant. Generally, it is known as a type of small neighbourhood convenience store and cafe in Indonesia and Malaysia. A warung is typically an essential part of the daily lives of the locals. Our idea is to re-create a modern day warung selling daily essential products while building a community among the retail and customers.
