After that, we went back to the hotel for a while before trying another Bataknese restaurant. This time, we went to the famous RM. On Do located at Sekip area. This restaurant is bigger than Tabo Bah, with a wide and green backyard + a big gazebo as the alternate dining area. Off course, we chose to sit at the back of the restaurant. It was already past lunch hour, so we can easily get a table. From what I’ve heard, this restaurant is owned by a Korean – Chinese couple.
The three of us (minus SC) were in the “babi buta mode: on”, and we started ordering babi panggang 19.5K, saksang babi 15K, pulos-pulos 9K, babi goreng 19.5K to go with steamed rice 4K. For the drinks, we ordered martabe juice 16K, sirsak juice 16K and teh tong 3K. It was delicious. I liked most of the dishes, but much like what I felt at Tabo Bah, the dishes and atmosphere didn’t feel authentic. Maybe on my next visit to Medan, I’ll visit RM Tesalonika that serve more authentic Bataknese BPK 😛
