Visited here EVERYTIME I visited the city. If I don't mind my colesterol, I'd be here everyday.. It was just so crisp and tender. HUGE portion and at a very economic price. (500gr for less than USD 3) Consider the "babi merah" if you don't like intestines.

One of the finest Batak traditional food. You can by the grilled pork either by small plate or in KGs. Price are cheap considering the taste and the size of the serving. They provide delivery order to the hotel or Airport as well !!

I could not say the food is bad, it is just a so-so, average. You wouldnt be disappointed about the taste if you not expect too much. They are quite popular in Medan and have some branches. If you want to taste bataknese traditional food, it worth to be tried.

It has the best BPK in town. BPK is a special roast pork from Karo, Medan. Eat while it's hot, with rice and the soup.

For those who love to eat Pork, must be agree that Babi Panggang Karo (BPK) is the best pork barbecue. In Medan, actually there are many BPK restaurants but the famous one is BPK Tesalonika. Many tourists bring BPK Tesalonika as gift. But, I think the taste is average. I prefer BPK Daud or BPK Ola Kisat.
