recipe | indonesian soto betawi

hello! it's a good saturday! the first saturday of fasting (although i am not fasting) and i am making a big bowl of soto betawi *dancing*

soto itself is a indonesian traditional dish, which has many varieties depends on the area it developed. to be honest, soto betawi is my ultimate favourite amongst all of other soto. i have the most favourite soto betawi stall, i used to buy it when i was still working in jakarta (around kemang area). it's been year since i bought my last soto betawi from my favourite stall, so this is my attempt to release my longing for this tasty food (still doesn't taste the same as my favourite, though! but, it's surely enough for now!).
