From Soto Kesawan, we walked over to the famous Tip Top restaurant for some dessert. I’ve written about this place before, but I only tried their bakery & ice cream at that time. Tip Top is a very old restaurant with roots dating back to the early decades of the last century, much like Ragusa in Jakarta and Zangrandi in Surabaya. I love the old colonial atmosphere here, everything looked old but still in a good shape. Opened since 1929 and formerly named Jangkie, the restaurant serves various western, Indonesian and Chinese dishes. It used to be a well-known restaurant for wealthy people in Medan.
Since we’ve already had our breakfast, we only ordered a portion of peach melba to share. It was good and not too sweet. Several minutes later, my brother arrived and I persuaded him to order some main course so I can get some bite of it. *grin* So he ordered a portion of ox tongue steak. The presentation was good and the taste was delicious. The ox tongue was tender and even without the sauce, it was already good. I think I’ll have to return and order a full plate for myself.
