I always like soto and this soto is also included to be one of my favorite. Taste is delicious and the portion is not too big.

You may put on the list a must try food in Semarang is Soto Bangkong. I always stop by for lunch when trip to the city. Location is near Post Office and it is a central of the city. This soto would be one of legendary chicken soup in Semarang. Taste was good.

There are a few different soto in Semarang, but Bangkong has been my favorite place to eat soto. Start with the ritual of adding some lime and kecap, the soto is enjoyable when you have tempe as the side dish.

If you're used to food in Surabaya/Jakarta, the food in Semarang may taste sweet as they have a tendency to put sweet soy sauce in everything. Delightful soto thought. My recommendations? A plain Soto with rice. Get the fried "pergedel" too. Cheers.
