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.
