After a light breakfast at Sinar Pagi, we continued our journey to try a noodle shop at Jl. Perdana, but we took a wrong turn and we passed by Kesawan (Ahmad Yani) street. We decided to stop for a while and try the famous Tip Top restaurant. I don’t know whether this is the oldest restaurant in Medan, but the place seems to be in a good shape considering that it has been around for about a century. The building design was typical of Dutch colonial era. A uniformed waiter greeted us and led us to a table in the verandah.
My friend raved about their bakery, so I went to the bakery next door and ordered several items to eat, including risoles. Tip Top offers various Indonesian, Western & Chinese dishes. But the place is famous for their home made ice cream, so we picked java ice cream 13K and something that looked like tutti frutty called puckles 13K. The ice cream and risoles are great and the price was very reasonable. I really liked the java ice cream with its strong hints of coffee.
