“Must buy in Medan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is the number one roll cake in Medan. And their taste is very good. I like their cheese roll cake, topped with cheese also (only for cheese lovers...). Their cheese is so generous. Also they have other variety like mocca, blueberry, pineapples, etc. But for me, still the champion is cheese roll cake.
Remember to spare time when you buy this because usually it can take around 10 minutes or more.

“Tasty bolu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Meranti never failed me. They make the nicest bolu, moist, not too oily, not too sweet. Love the cheese one, the blueberry is also nice.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

My expectation was very big with this product - however, it was not as great as people say. The price of this cake was worthed, it was not overrated hence the size is also big enough to eat for many people.

“Fingerlicking good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

Most of Medan people who are too used to the taste of Meranti rolls will just say that this is O.K. But for me, the taste of the rolls is keep getting better. I remember buying the rolls several years ago and compare the rolls in the present, and I realize, in my opinion, the filling of the rolls is getting much more than that years ago.

This pastry is a must-try for Medan visitor, and of course a good gift to be brought back home. One of the most well-known, an I think the most delicious filling is the chocolate-cheese feeling.
