On our last night in Medan, I decided to try our luck. I’ve looked for Kwetiaw Jie Mei last year we were here and couldn’t find it, so this year I went looking again. And finally with the help of foursquare, I found it at Jl. Sutomo, not far from Jl. Bogor. The place is clean and spartan with no signboard saying that this is the place we look for, but the small crowd of people is a dead giveaway. Sure enough, after we were seated, I spotted the Chinese characters ‘姐妹’ (jie mei/sisters) so I knew we’re in the right place.
Since we just had kwetiaw at Jl. Selat Panjang, we only ordered a portion of kwetiaw to share. Judging from the crowd, the place looks quite promising, and I was not disappointed. The char kwetiaw was delicious with generous topping and, most importantly, not too oily. If compared to kwetiaw Jl. Gedeh we had when we just arrived in Medan, this one is way much better.

PS: I’m not sure if this place has any relations with Kwetiaw Jie Mei selling at several locations in Jakarta.
