My better half and I went to look for this place when we were in Medan after reading some reviews on Trip Advisor. It was located in the older part of the city. It was quite a long walk from our hotel, Palace Inn in Jalan Majapahit. Later in the evening, we took a becak back.
We had expected to come to a food court but we were disappointed because it was only a narrow street lined with some food stalls on wheels as well as eating shops on both sides of the street. Among the limited types of food sold were local cakes (kuih), chicken rice, sate, soup noodles, porridge, soto, dessert, fried rice and noodles. As night fall, the place was not well-lit and many vehicles including four-wheel drives and motorcycles squeezed their way through among the pedestrians. It was quite disorderly and exhaust fumes filled the air.
The egg noodles at this restaurant was the best noodle dish we had found after a week in Sumatra. It was delicious with the extra big wanton (pork dumplings) and char siew (barbecued pork). It had been in business since 1940. The proprietor was friendly and his business was very good as his place was crowded with customers. We also tried the chicken porridge from the shop beside it. It was good too.
There was a similar 'food street' (Jalan Semarang) just two blocks down the road.
