Soto Medan - Medan Style Chicken Soup
I was born in Medan, the capital city of North Sumatra, and spent my childhood there.

Terong Saus Tomat Pedas - Eggplant in Spicy Tomato Sauce
A great thing about this eggplant dish is you can adjust the strength of heat by using different types of chilies. If you want a milder dish, use fresno chilies. If you want a super spicy dish, go with Thai red chilies. And when you simply cannot tolerate any heat at all, feel free to sub with red bell pepper.
