After savoring the popiah, we were on our way back to our hotel when SC reminded me about a place that sold Gu Bak Wan (Chinese/Medanese style beef meatball) near the hotel. We’ve been planning to visit this place since the first day we arrived at Medan, but they opened at weird hours (about 1:30PM untill 4PM) and it sold out pretty fast. So we quickly went there and ordered a bowl of Gu Bak Wan. Besides meat ball, the soup also contained several types of beef innards. It was delicious, the soup was fragrant and the meat was tender. You can also have this kind of beef meatball soup at Bakso Akiaw at Mangga Besar/Kelapa Gading/Taman Palem – Jakarta.
