Indonesia - "Soto Ayam Ambengan" in Surabaya

klyeoh | Aug 26, 2011 07:50 PM

Had lunch at the legendary spot in Surabaya for "Soto Ayam Ambengan", a tasty chicken & glass-noodles (mungbean flour vermicelli) soup dish: Pak Sadi "Asli". It's been operating since 1971, and the crowds still build up at lunch-time here.

The chicken soup's tasty from the local "bumbu" spice mix, tinged yellow by turmeric, and served with generous helpings of chicken-meat, hard-boiled egg, chopped spring onions & golden-crisp minced garlic. Went really well with a plate of steamed white rice. I didn't opt for the "Ambengan" version, which is a Surabaya variation involving the addtion of pulverised prawn crackers to thicken the soup (like we do to clam chowder with crushed biscuits).

The local green-colored "fruit-flavored" Fanta soda was a lark :-)
