another day in pecenongan street and this is what i ate for lunch.. 'Soto Kwali Asli Solo - Mas Ireng'.. it's located right in front of my client's office.. and i was not supposed to have lunch more than one hour (to be effective) so this is what we chose to eat..
the soto looks a lot like soto kudus with the clear soup, though this Soto Kwali got a little yellowish color.. what's inside? it's a thin rice noodle (bihun?) and sliced cabbage and the chicken (or beef if you'd like) and rice (since we chose to mix it up)..
at first i tried it, the soup was very light.. there's no too much flavours or spices.. which i like.. i don't really like the full spices soup.. in the table, you can add ketchup (kecap?), chillies, a little lime juice and salt.. so, basically you can make your own creation of the soup.. then they also provided the side dish, including fried tofu, fried tempe and croquette (perkedel)..
me? i ate it with the perkedel.. and it turns out to be too much for me.. well, if in case you're office was nearby or you would like to try it.. just go and grab it.. the price? it's IDR10 for the soup with rice and perkedel..
