SOTO - chicken soup, noodle, egg, shrimp crackers is really authentic Indonesian taste. Pak Sadi Soto Ayam Ambengan Surabaya is famous one. It not a big restaurant, the place is quite clean and offers soto in any varians.

Legendary Soto (a spiced chicken soup).It's my favorite from childhood and still. Small place but decent one, decent price too. They had many branches in the city and other cities too but still the original place is the best.

This restaurant is famous in Surabaya. Their famous food is Soto Ambengan, a thick soup with chiken meat etc. Taste good.... In the lunch time it's so crowded and very hard to park your car. The price is reasonable......the place is hot....
