    Kitchenesia.com - One of the beauties of Indonesian cuisine is that one small region can have several many variations of one particular food. To give you an idea, Surabaya is a home for nationwide-famous Soto Surabaya, a traditional chicken soup with yellowish-broth soup that exudes soft herbs aroma.

    Still within the same city, Surabaya is also an origin place of Soto Sulung (Surabayan beef and offal soup). But the wonderfully weird fact is that soto sulung is more similar to Jakarta’s soto Betawi ingredients-wise for both use beef as the main ingredient.

    The name “sulung” comes from Sulung Street, a major road in Surabaya where its restaurants flock. Thus, it might be hard to buy one if your position is far from the region.
