Sibolang Durian

Street Food in Medan

If you haven't tried durian, then stop by this 'aromatic' open-air eating establishment dedicated to the world's smelliest fruit. It's not just some random street vendor, this is a brightly lit neon 24-hour temple to durian, with picnic tables full of locals eagerly scooping out the flesh of this gooey local treat.

It's along the main strip, but you'll smell it before you see it. You pay by the weight, but it can be a little pricey out of season (which is generally December to June).
