I even left my breakfast in the hotel for this "soto" (meatsoup). It has become my ritual to visit sinar pagi when I was in Medan. Always crowded, but they were very efficient in serving meals. Try their soto campur, the herbs were strong and fragrant..

I believe the soto here is one of the most popular in Medan. However, the restaurant is small, cramp and hot. The day I went, it was crowded. So I guessed it's one of the most popular eateries.
