Bika Ambon and Lapis Legit, Medan

Talking about local delicacy, Bika Ambon and Lapis Legit are local cakes not to be missed. Our tour guide brought us to this shop located at Jalan Sekip, Medan to buy some of these.


Bika Ambon, or honey cake as told by the tour guide, is widely known as specialty cake of Medan. Ingredients used to make this local delicacy include tapioca and sago flour, eggs, sugar and coconut milk.

Lapis Legit, a Dutch-Indonesian layer cake, is made from ingredients such as egg yolks, butter and sugar. Lapis Legit literally means very rich layer cake.

As I prefer Bika Ambon more, hence I have only bought this. Well, Lapis Legit is too rich for me :)
