Medan Ciak – Sydney

Been curious with this Indonesian resto for long time cause good reviews from some people and more curious after seen their weekend promo on Indonesia-Sydney community forum in Facebook. This place is located in Shop 3, 460 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills, Sydney. Not far from Central station. 

I was there before lunch time (approx at 11am) but the place already full of patrons, lucky i had a small table on the back. Like other Indonesian resto in town, nothing fancy with this place. 

Since it was brunch and i still wanna have meals in other place, so i just ordered Lontong Sayur Medan ($13), it came with fried chicken, balado egg (egg cooked in chilli sauce) and rendang (braised beef cooked in coconut curry), kering kentang (sweet spicy potato crackers), veggies curry and some chunky rice cake (lontong). It tasted good, curry and rendang so rich, what i dont like about this food only one, small portion and not fulfilling lol. 

Second dish i was ordered sate padang ($13), been so long not to eat sate padang. This is one of my favorite Indonesian dish, so i had high expectation about their weekend special promo dish. But i was wrong their sate padang couldnt meet my expectation since they used beef instead cow tongue (fyi, original and authentic sate padang used cow tongue rather than beef), and the sauce not really kicked. I tasted something missing on their sauce. However, Padang food better made by Padangnese. Period. 

If you curious about Medanese food, Medan Ciak is right place. You can find mie siantar, emie rebus and even BPK right here. Ciao!
