From RM Kuotie Krekot, we walked a short distance to a restaurant called Medan Baru. Medan Baru serves Acehnese cuisine. Their serving method is quite similar to Padangnese restaurant. So we went inside and ordered a portion of their specialty: Burung Punai Goreng 13K / piece. I’m not really sure what kind of bird punai is, though I can tell you it’s a small bird. When the dish came, the apearance and aroma were very tempting. The bird was first marinaded/braised in yellow spices before being deep fried, resulting in a crispy exterior, but moist meat inside. It was served with sliced chili with kecap manis. We initially wanted to share one bird for the three of us, but we ended up eating one bird each 🙂

    Kalo gak salah inget, burung punai itu bahasa Melayunya dari burung dara (pigeon, bukan dove).

    All 3 phones of Medan Baru restaurant can not be contacted. Could it be closed already ?
