Hey Everyone!
Today we’re going to share with you some of activities to do in Pekanbaru. 💡

If you love culinary adventures, here are few things you may be interested:

1. Jus Jagung / Sweet Corn Juice
At first, if you’re not familiar with it, it might sound a bit strange. But, trust me. We love it! Corn juice is naturally sweet and creamy yet delicate. Why not try it in our Maple Tree Restaurant?

2. Mie Kacang / Peanut Noodles
Directly translated, it means Peanut Noodle. One of the best one you can find is in Jalan Kulim (on your left side from Jalan Riau). Small little house with few tables and chairs inside. If you can’t find it, just ask the neighbourhood.. I’m sure they are willing to direct you 🙂

3. Bolu Kemojo
A traditional cake from Pekanbaru in soft green colour and flower shape. Produced with the colour of Pandan leaves, bolu kemojo is easy to make and widely available in the city especially in the local souvenir shops. Why not have some before you leave?

Special sweets from Riau with durian being the main ingredients. With its chewy textures, durian lovers may want more and more…

5. Mie Sagu / Sagu Noodles
An authentic culinary of Riau especially in Selatpanjang. Our way of describing it would be authentic taste noodle with a little bit chewy textures. What we like about it is that the way Sagu Noodle is made without any preservatives.
