Odd enough that it was a Korean who ran this Batak restaurant. What’s he doing in Medan selling Batak food? I don’t know, didn’t ask and didn’t care.
I’m there for Saksang – a dish of stewed pig mixed with porcine blood and loads of chilli. It’s sweat-inducing burn-your-tongue-off brilliance. A tad salty but that’s what white rice is for.
Saksang…pig+blood+chilli+herbs (sweat glands not included)
Bits of fried chicken?
Some fish head in curry?
