Let’s be a Manager at Tsukada Nojo!

Rate : 9/10

OMG I’m so suapakau when I first came here! I thought I was a but late, but, better late than never right? I went to Tsukada Nojo for lunch at first, but the place hadn’t opened yet, so I went back the day after tomorrow for dinner.

I never know this place before and actually a man brought me out here for a lunch dinner date 😆 because I really love soup, like really lovee!!

We went there on Saturday and the place was really crowded. We had to wait for almost two hours, err okay, maybe because it was weekend. The impatient me was so curious about the taste of this famous beauty collagen hotpot.

Well, Tsukada Nojo is a Japanese restaurant specialty in beauty collagen stock. They are known for their Bijin Nabe (Beauty Collagen Hotpot).

Why is it called Beauty Pot?

Because you know, they said that drinking collagen soup will make you skin smooth and clean, makes you look beautiful, especially for the ladies. I bet lot of girls come here for this 😅

Taste : 9/10

The soup is stewed for about 8 hours until the chicken bones are fully dissolved. The soup looks like pudding, or I think it’s more similar to 豆花 at first, then we just need heat it to wait till it melt fully and turned to collagen soup. Soup is rich and chicken is tender. The combination of fresh seafoods and vegetables with the soup is superb nice. There are quite lots of things that you can put inside the soup; lady’s finger, yellow zucchini, watermelon radish, baby corn, yuzu, deep fried tofu, black fungus, mushrooms, fresh shrimps, deep fried tofu.

Service : 8/10

The serving staffs dressed in Kimono are all very nice and polite to us. They always assist us in cooking too.

After we finished eating, we were each handed a “business card” and asked to write our names on them. The card is given to customers and you are given a stamp with each dinner visit. First-timers will start from “Assistant Manager” level and will be “promoted” to the next management level on subsequent visit. So, don’t forget to bring your card every time you visit here. Plus, we will also be given a free dessert on each visit. How nice is it? 😋

Chinatown Medan – Asia Mega Mas

I’m pretty sure that almost every country in this world have “Chinatown”. Well Well.. My hometown Medan also have Chinatown leh!

So, the Chinatown Medan is located at Asia Mega Mas. Last time, this place was just housing area, but few years ago, this place has turned become a crazy crowded place, especially when weekends or holidays.

So, WHAT can you find here?

A LOT OF THINGS!

But first, it’s FOOD!

Oh yeah for you who don’t know, Medan is the second biggest city in Indonesia, located at North Sumatra and FYI, it’s very famous of the FOOD! Lots of people say that Medan is the heaven of culinary. Is it true? I let you say.

So back to Chinatown Medan, is that you can find a lot kinds of food here. Penang Kwetiao, Duck Beehon, Ayam Penyet, Sate Padang, Lok Lok, and many moreee.. And not just food, you can also find some stalls selling BKK dress, shoes, cosmetics, and some other stuffs.

What I don’t like about this place is : It’s too packed! As in, if you come on weekends, most of the times you will have difficulties to find a parking lot. And also a lot of cars / motorcycles pass by the road. So, sometimes it’s just very uncomfortable when you want to shop and at the same time, you need to watch out for the vehicles passing by. It’s nicer if they close the road for vehicles so that people will be comfortable to walk around. Just IMHO though.

You haven’t come to Medan? Oh you should! Say bye bye to your diet before coming here and make sure you visit Chinatown Medan at Asia Mega Mas. It opens from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Confuse about how you should travel in Medan? Don’t worry. Just drop me an e-mail to wongsofenny@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to help 😀

You came to Chinatown Medan before? Then what’s your favorite food here? You can share with me 🙂
