Nasi Padang - Medan Ciak in Sydney

Give this article a thumbs up if you like it ;-)

If you ask people about Asian cuisine, a lot will tell you about Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and perhaps Korean foods. What about the others? Like Indonesian cuisine?

Most people (except Indonesian) have not really tried Indonesian food. They will ask, "is it similar to Malaysian Food?". Well, we do have some dishes that are similar, for example, satay, rendang, etc. However, tastewise is different. Indonesian food is known for its spiciness, depending on which province or location.

So, where do we find Indonesian eateries in Sydney? The Indonesian eateries in Sydney stretch out along the Anzac Parade from Kensington to Maroubra?

Hmmm... So do you have to travel to the areas to try some Indonesian foods? The answer is "No". There is an Indonesian eatery "Medan Ciak" that has been opened for several years but only recently becoming so popular. Their first shop is at Surry Hills and they just recently opened a branch in Liverpool street at Sydney CBD.

"Medan Ciak" means Medanese cuisine. Medan is a city in the North Sumatra province. If you like something that tickles your taste bud, you will sure love the foods from this place. For example, "Nasi Padang".

Medan Ciak also offers special menus on the weekend. Check out their Facebook page for the special menus. Indonesian desserts are also available on the weekend.  They are pretty packed on the weekend though, so be sure to arrive early.

Price range $12 - $14.
