PANIKI a UNIQUE CUISINE made from smoked bats, find it at TOMOHON, a small city south of Manado

TOMOHON is a nice place in North Sulawesi Province, visitors could reach this cool small town by take a commuter transportation “ANGKOT” from pasar 45 ( empat lima market) or from a pathway along the Manado down town boulevard to a destination to an intercity bus terminal at KAROMBASAN, then from Karombasan take a bus with the destination to TOMOHON, drive as far as 30 km away from Manado to the South, through long, winding and steep hill road.

If you have a chance visiting Tomohon, don’t miss TOMOHON MARKET, just walking distance from a bus stop, a unique of Tomohon wet market was where there are stranded stalls which sell various kinds of vegetable and also between the veggies stall you could find some stall which sell Bats barbeque on their table.

Tomohon, was really uniQUE in line with a popular of Minahasa’s cuisine called PANIKI, a local cuisine made from a smoked bats, I would say that almost of the peoples here were prepare BATS as their food consumption, this is why I would also called them as BATMAN, the peoples who enjoy Paniki, a bats barbeque as one of their popular menu.
