This little Resto is just lovely. The food for me reminds me of my grandma's cooking. The owner was very friendly and happy to see us finish the food. Worth a visit I say.

It is a small eating place and the owner himself serving us, interesting to talk with him about history of Selan. We had two bowls of soto, with marinated egg and some fried chicken. Taste was great!

It's so yummy. Suitable for breakfast. The main course is rice with soto. But the sidedish is more delicious:p

The main food is chicken soto (chicken soup) with many side dish. The soto itself is served in a small bowl. People easily order extra bowls. Myself, could easily eat 3 or 4 portions or bowls. 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.
