1. KARO grilled Pork
We are here, so yeah we want to try the grilled pork. You know what, several years ago I wasn't really into pork. I like pork satay but other than that, no thanks. But now, trying this meal, I just loves the juicy part of this meal.

Usually, along with this order the restaurant gives this one for free. To be eaten together with grilled pork is pounded cassava leaves . So don't reject this side dish.

Unfortunately, I forgot to ask whether the below is the andaliman chilli. According to my mom, since chilli is a bit rare in north Sumatra, locals use andaliman for spices.
And the below is cooked pig's blood with spices, for grilled pork's sauce dipping. Sound gross at first, but I have to admit is delicious!

This local dish is always my favorite. In Indonesian known as arsik ikan mas and you may find that andaliman also being used as one important ingredients as well.

No mention of drinks, because we ordered tea and drinking free hot water. My mom ordered orange juice and nothing extra special about it. The waitresses are all nice and helpful, and they remember your order without even writing down.
Here is the bill, and as you can see the price is still okay compare with the food.
If you are visiting north Sumatra, this place is worth visit and no worries, there are a lot of them around north Sumatra.
I reviewed the place as well on google here and to see the location check the below map.
