At first glance, one might think that Mee Soto is *just* souped noodles. That cannot be further from the truth! In Asia, Mee Soto is a hawker hero that can be found in almost every so many food store for a good reason – it’s damn sedap!
Over here, we normally use yellow noodles for our soto, and what really makes a difference is the use of star anise, cinnamon and other spices that make spice paste so tasty. Our choice was to top it off with shallots, fresh coriander and chicken meat.
So try out this popular noodle-y dish. It’s fun to cook, it’s yummy, and it’s something you won’t forget once you taste it!
