One of the restaurant we visited when we’re in Medan is Nelayan, Apparently this is quite large Chinese restaurant chain in Medan, they have several restaurant located strategically at shopping centers. The one we visited was located at Sun Plaza. when we arrived, around 2PM the place was still very crowded, we have to queue for a while to get a table, as soon as we were seated, their waiter came with a tray of dimsum selection and asked us to pick. We didn’t even have time to read all the menu listed in the paper 🙁 so we picked : lumpia udang saus jamur 8.5K, kaki ayam saus tiram 8.5K, leng hong kien 12K, soup tim ayam obat 14K, sayap ayam panggang 12K, kepiting lunak mentega 21K, keladi special (u kok) 8.5K, ha kaou udang 12K, lumpia ayam sayur hitam (I guess what they mean is nori) 8.5K, bakso kepiting kulit tahu 12K and nasi tim ayam dalam bambu 11K. Overall the meal was only so so (some of the item we ordered are cold already, some taste weird), but I like the chicken rice cooked in bamboo and the chicken herbal soup. Other than that I really don’t like their service style, kind of push you to pick the food as soon as possible and leave quickly because they have other customer waiting 🙁 that’s not what I had in mind if I want to eat dimsum.
