Selamat Datang Mee Soto and Mee Rebus - Best of Class

Sumadi is a down to earth and and affable young lad, who happens to operate and run Selamat Datang Mee Soto and Mee Rebus at the food market along Adam Road.

He is also the third generation owner, having learned the ropes from his dad, and let me tell you straight up now. This is possible the finest mee soto and mee rebus you are going to find in town. Or anywhere.

The star is the delicate and delicious broth which is made up of 21 specific ingredients. Sumadi personally oversees the making of this broth everyday and is particular and meticulous in every aspect.

The injection of spices and chicken to create the naturally sweet taste is fully appreciated by this author. And how good the broth tastes can be measured by how long it lingers. And it will linger on for quite some time, even after you leave this place.

Mee Soto

Mee foto is the yellow noodle variant of utilising this broth, and despite my reservations of the alkaline taste in most yellow noodle dishes, there is none of that soapy noodle taste here.

Partly, because the broth does a good job of masking it, and I also particular like how the shredded chicken slices are not dry but are actually almost almost chunky in texture and they retain a slight tender bite.

You should also order the potato crusty bergadil to dip into the broth. The infusion of the tasty soup into the potato mix and batter is just heavenly.

Ayam Soto

The ayam soto makes use of the similar broth but the noodles are replaced by lotong, or glutinous rice cubes. They are similar to what you get from satay dishes and when infused with the broth, it makes for a very fulfilling meal.

Whichever variant you get here, the broth based dishes are all very good and delectable. It may look simple but considering the effort that Sumadi puts in, it can be quite deceivingly brilliant. The taste says it all with its persuasive and subtle tones of well balanced flavours.

Definitely, this is the best of class when it comes to mee soto.
