I truly fall in love with the Swiss Rolls, the cheese fillings is my all time favorite. My first bite was 8 years ago and the taste is unforgettable and unbeatable. Every month I make a trip to Medan and one of the major task is to bring the rolls back home.

A bit disappointed when I bought bolu meranti. Used to be a nice cake but no longer popular in taste now as the cake it self quite dried and not really tasty at all. I assume there is no proper QC and too bad if they still keep doing the same thing.

Morning till after lunch are good time to come there to avoid disappointment of not getting what you want.
