Medan Chinatown is a housing complex that turns into china town at night. It was originally a cluster of houses. Overtime, it has grown into a street market area where most merchants are Chinese. They decorate their shops and stalls with Chinese ornaments to make them look unique. To see it on the map, click here.
There are various unique food and food court, clothes, souvenirs and cyber cafes along the road. It is suitable for family or groups. Taste and prices make this point of interest special.
What to Enjoy
Visiting here for culinary purposes is good at night. Even if you come during the day, it’s okay, because there are several cafes or hangout places that are open 24 hours around Medan Chinatown, namely Cafe Walk, Yummy Foodcourt, and Gelato Garden.
Over all, the food offered by the merchants here is much different. The menu is more of a mix of other original food (mixed food). The problem is that there are also many food outlets that sell pork. To be more aware before ordering, try to ask the seller first. Unless you eat everything, just break through.
For those who bring their family and really want to taste seafood, it seems that they must stop by the Seafood Patent and Seafood Sea Urchin. Culinary style Indonesian food is also delicious. Try the cozy Yummy Foodcourt. You could say, the three places to eat at Medan Chinatown are the most crowded.
What to Expect
Always crowded at night and hard to park. Always bargain before purchase and take good care of belongings.
