Best Soto in PJ

Written by Updated ago

Soto is among the pride of Indonesian cuisine and its well-adorned by Malaysians too. Unlike all those excessively gussied up soupy dishes out there, a good bowl of soto is meant to be kept simple. It’s a light-bodied herbal or chicken soup simmered with turmeric powder, herbs and spices which is then ladled over nasi impit, vermicelli or yellow noodles. Fried shallots, bean sprouts, tender slices of chicken, boiled egg, vegetables and sprinkle of herbs are then scattered over the surface of the dish. You can never deny that this is what you desperately need during a perfect cold weather. Noodle geeks, the curated list below present a challenge for you to return to your previous noodle favourites.

    Village Park Restaurant is a stalwart in the nasi lemak scene and the teeming crowd is a dead giveaway you should be a part of it too. Apart from the main attraction of the restaurant, their soto has been nabbing a fair amount of accolades too. Cubes of nasi impit are buried in the delicious broth and topped with generous amount of chicken slivers and fried tofu, then finished with sprinklings of fried shallots, herbs and nuts that add an element of crunch to the dish. The texture of the rice cakes deserve a mention, it’s soft yet chewy, certainly complementing the savoury broth.

    Sköhns Canteen

    Decked out like a cosy cafe with a kitchen that predominantly churns out manly dishes like big burgers and hearty Western fares, soto purists may baulk heading over. But that would be a huge mistake as their soto is nothing less than spectacular. The symphony of silky noodles, bean sprouts, tender chicken shreds, a splash of herbs and fried onions complete the slurp-worthy bowl. For a dose of heat, do include their spicy sambal into the fragrant and flavoursome bowl. Not a fan of noodles? The kitchen occasionally serves up nasi impit too.

    Chawan is a popular chill-out spot for locals who hanker for a decent selection of Malaysian delights. Among the trump card on the menu is their soto ayam which can be savoured with rice vermicelli, yellow noodles, both mixed or nasi impit. The balmy bowl is then spruced up with chicken pieces, a smattering of nuts and chopped chives. A soul-warming bowl of soto without a hefty price tag in a cosy and clean environment, it has everything you can ask for. Oh yes, do wrap up your meal with their signature freshly brewed coffee that is served in a Baba Nyonya chawan, that’s how the name came from.
