Yummy...yummy!! This is my fave dish when I was a kid! What is soto mie? Actually, soto is included in soup's family, but in Indonesia we have soto and soup. Soto is more Indonesian style of soup.
In Jakarta, there were a famous soto mie's stall named Soto Mie Jalan D which is Jalan D was a reflection of the address of the stall. I remember went to Jalan D to eat soto after school when my mom picked me up from the school. Sometimes we went there with my friends and their moms too :).
The funny thing is, when I was in Indonesia, I never really-looking this soto, also, I never try to make it by myself. But, now, when I lived in a far far away country, I missed it! :(. So, I decided to make soto mie by myself *yeaaa, where else I can get this kind Indonesian food here*. Then, I spoiled my mouth and tongue with this-so-missed-soto mie :). Do you wanna join me?
