Medan Town (Famous Medanese Food) At Tanjong Katong
I’ve actually passed by this eatery many times, but was always doubtful about the food and it’s value. Medan Town is Singapore’s first authentic Medanese restaurant and the owners of Medan Town are Medanese natives. So be ready to indulge in original and traditional Medanese Duck (Bebek) Noodles and Prawn Soto as well as several other sumptuous dishes.
Food served here are home-styled cooking and well-known street fare commonly found in Medan which is the fourth largest city in Indonesia.
I understand from sources that in different parts of Indonesia the food will differ a little (more spicy, sweet etc.) From my observations, these food served seemed to be “sweet”.
Tony and I had Nasi Rendang Ayam ($6.5), Nasi Rendang Sapi ($6.8), Sam Cham Bak (Fried Pork Belly) at $4.8 and Tahu Goreng ($4.5).
Rendang flavour was superb for both of our mains. It was moderately spicy which will be suitable for those who has lower tolerance for spice.
The Sapi (beef) was slow cooked till tender and yet retaining some tension in the meat. Best!
Sam Cham Bak is one of the bestsellers in the restaurant. Firstly, the pork belly is marinated in coriander before going through the process of deep-frying. Secondly, meat was succulent and had a good mix of fats and portion of lean meat.
I highly recommend Medan Town as the price is pocket friendly and food were awesome. Indeed an eatery that genuinely serves authentic food at great price!
