The most well known menu is Soto Bangkong (of course), although you can find the same 'warung' in many different places in Indonesia; this is the first 'warung' the restaurant chain had. It worth a visit

The taste of this kind of soto is very unique, very spicy and fresh. A bowl of soto is served with a lot of choices of its accessory. It is not enough to take only one bowl in one shoot.....

My family has been customer of this old, traditional Javanese cuisine. It has certain taste that no other can imitate. The eatery is pretty well spaced, but sometimes crowded due to it's fame, eventough they have branches all over Semarang, my favourite is still the original spot: the Bangkong crossroad. Too bad the parking space aren't as spacious. On certain... More

I had this dish as breakfast. The soto was tasty and the portion was good. The potato patties (bergedel) was exceptional. However the cockle sate (sate kerang) was a bit too sweet for my liking. The fried tempeh was okay. I was lucky that the place was not smokey when i was there (brought here by relatives). Otherwise if it... More

I've been here once or twice, the restaurant is big but really dark inside even in the super sunny day.. Please turn on the light. The soto its not really special too, you could find another soto with similar taste other than this place.
