Food Hunting: What to eat in Pasar Sambas

What’s better than visiting pasar after morning workout? Pasar Sambas merupakan salah satu pasar terbesar di Medan. Soal kuliner, bangunan berlantai 2 ini menyimpan banyak hidden gems.

Why Pasar Sambas? Well, karena lokasinya paling dekat dengan Paradiso Swimming Pool, that’s where I swim regularly when the sun rise. So I can say I’ve visited many stalls for food and coffee, and found some are delicious.

So let’s begin the adventure.

Sebelum kita masuk ke dalam gedung tersebut, mari explore beberapa spot buat nyari makan.
