Durian is very popular in Medan that eating it is considered a quintessential activity for locals. It’s like their version of peanuts! While it is quite infamous for its aroma, Si Bolang Durian is reinventing the way it is enjoyed with their open-concept restaurant. Head to this store any time of the day to enjoy their fresh selections as they are open 24 hours. It’s important to note that their peak season prices are relatively cheaper than they are off-season, so plan ahead if you want a good deal.
I probably won't be able to afford a stay at the Mandarin Oriental hotel anytime soon, so the next best thing is to go to the bakery at Emporium where you can pick up a Rosemary Foccacia loaf for only 100 baht! They also do good croissants, pain au chocolat and quiche.
