The correct name of the soup is "Soto Betawi".

I just called JAVA restaurant and confirmed the dish.

For those who just heard this: it is very unique and flavorful soup consist of lamb meat chunks, white broth and other goodies. It is unlike anything that you normally found here in U.S. but very delicious. I highly recommend it. JAVA is located in Geary right after the tunnel if you come from Japantown.

Also Andrew, see the post below for new dishes to try.
