Another line from Olagafood is Maitri. All of these are vegetarian. Today we have some soto – let’s hit up Wikipedia about it –

Soto (also known as srototauto, or coto) is a traditional Indonesian soup mainly composed of broth, meat and vegetables. Many traditional soups are called soto, whereas foreign and Western influenced soups are called sop.

Soto is sometimes considered Indonesia’s national dish, as it is served from Sumatra to Papua, in a wide range of variations. Soto is omnipresent in Indonesia, available in many warungs and open-air eateries on many street corners, to fine dining restaurants and luxurious hotels.[1] Soto, especially soto ayam (chicken soto), is an Indonesian equivalent of chicken soup. Because it is always served warm with a tender texture, it is considered an Indonesian comfort food.[2][3][4]

What’s great is that I’m working with Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store/restaurant has all things Indonesian, and he’s offered to sponsor this series with some garnishes and insight into what will make them even better. Let’s check this one out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added (prepared by Waroeng Jajanan) Indonesian pickle, vegetable fritter, fried onion (my own) coriander. The noodles come out nicely – standard gauge with a light bouncy chew. The broth has a nice slightly lime hinted and beefy taste – very good for a vegetarian version. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 034126937278.
