Besides Mongolian Chicken Rice, the mee soto (or soto ayam) at Megah Jaya, Tawau is another must-try!

(“Soto” means “soup” and “Ayam” means “chicken”)

I am not a huge fan of soup-based noodles but this Indonesian version of soto ayam won me over!

My soto ayam served with shredded chicken meat, various kinds of seafood and noodles.

The essence of the good soto ayam lied in its spicy-aromatic chicken soup base first, then the condiments that came together to make the delicious dish. Oh, the lime and the sambal belacan (a kind of chili paste) definitely spiced up the dish too. Ooh la la, it was DIVINE!

By far, it was the best soto ayam I have ever had. Smiley

And yes - this place is always crowded as well and you might have to wait for seats!

Olla Mon.

Itu Soto ayam nampak sedap. Frankly, i am not into any kind of soup based noodles too. I like my soto ayam with pressed rice (nasi himpit) kua kua kua. And yes, i agree with you that the soup must be a bit spicy, sambal belacan and limau nipis to kick the taste. Then i ll be sweating eating it. Baru kaw kaw rasanya.

Happy weekend Mon : )
