Soto is Semarang's favourite menu for breakfast. This is one of my favourite. Reasonable price. Chicken wing as side dish is delicious.

This little Resto is just lovely. The food for me reminds me of my grandma's cooking. The owner was very friendly and happy to see us finish the food. Worth a visit I say.

It is a small eating place and the owner himself serving us, interesting to talk with him about history of Selan. We had two bowls of soto, with marinated egg and some fried chicken. Taste was great!

This small restaurant serves traditional soto (chicken soup) with lots of side dishes. My favorite is the fried chicken gizzard. The gizzard, when not cooked properly, can be very tough. But here they are marinated to perfection and will simply melt in your mouth.
