But recently, which is my first time eating it, 2 bowls only. It's very tastefull in my mouth. I could go more and more... More

This small restaurant serves traditional soto (chicken soup) with lots of side dishes. My favorite is the fried chicken gizzard. The gizzard, when not cooked properly, can be very tough. But here they are marinated to perfection and will simply melt in your mouth.

This Semarang Soto comes in small bowl with rice, shreded chicken, bean sprout, and pale gravy colour. The taste is just so so for me. I still cannot compare it with Soto Pak Jayus Surabaya nor Soto Gubeng Pojok.

Good taste but small place, they need to think to expand the restaurant capacity. But actually the taste of soto ayam that they have is delicious.

From that moment, I had been visiting this place more than 20 times. However, I don't really visit this place anymore these days as... More
