Toko (shop)

A toko ( Indonesian for shop) is a shop in the Netherlands selling mainly Asian food products of which the owners are generally Indo-European, Indonesian, Surinamese, Chinese or Vietnamese.

In Indonesia, the term toko is used a generic name for any kind of shop or store, not necessarily sold solely Asian food product. For example in Indonesia, toko roti means a bakery while a toko kelontong sells daily necessities. The term is of Indonesian origin and probably from the Chinese Hokkien loanword to refer a shop. In the Netherlands, the meanings has shifted more specifically to refer to Asian shops and takeaway restaurants.
