The best soto award in Brunei goes to…

May 8, 2008

Soto KuningThis soto kuning or yellow-stick noodle soup must be the best soto in Brunei. (Please challenge me here for any other place). That beverage, by the way is teh tarik. The soup was how a soup should be, not bland or tasteless and the contents – the noodles, beef (you may order chicken or seafood) and the garnishing – chillies, beansprouts and parsley; were all of a correct proportion – not too much, not too little. And I was given kasturi or small lime and lada rindu or flaring-hot chilliesNice! 

I had this at Red Canopy Food Court in Kiulap Plaza at a reasonable price (in terms of food quality and service) though I must warn you that they are charging a 5% service charge but hey, its the taste that count…yummy. Red Canopy Food Court would be officially open this weekend, according to the staff there.

    My best soto for me is Soto Tini’s. The best is of the sotos is, as I call it Soto Marriage Heart Bubble (Soto Kawin Hati Buyah).But there’s one thing I didn’t like about it. Service is slow, and difficult to call out to the waiters to get serviced (not that kind! – LOL). Infact you can just leave without paying and they won’t notice. The waiters tend to congregate in the kitchen for some weird reason.

    Hehe, so what kind of call service Kellaz :p. Yes service must go hand in hand with taste and that’s what I call the best. Apakan.

    Yes, i agree with you that the soup that counts.And to me, Soto Rosmini still the best.Once,i “tapau” $1 nasi kosong at the restaurant and ask for “that nyummy soup”. HeeHeeHeee….rasa kan makan supnya.

    Interesting blog u have here. Soto, as in SUTU, is my fave food. The still-nyaman sutu is sutu tinis in lambak. Must eat it panas-panas with lada rindu. My fave is always sutu kawin hati buyah… Hmm yummy. Tais liur tah ku ni nah… hehe.. Ke sana tah ku ni. Instant craving.

    owh yeah..if u want something worth your money, u should go for the any type of noodles with gravy either chicken/ beef/ seafood. They have the biggest plate of noodles i’ve seen so far…recommend you go for the kung fu noodle, if you want to fill a full tank of stomach hehehe

    Nash, soto is soto when the soup is so out of this world and must be darn hot too. There are those who sell cold soto…eewwww. I will try to search for your Soto si Ajis ani. Where are you Ajis?

    Kenapa ada 5% service charge ? Macam makan di Pizza Hut jua ni. Mun durang menyuapkan baik jua. Inda cukup duit bayaran makanan atukah ?
