Had Soto Pekalongan for lunch - what a tiny, dark, hot "warung". This one is unique to Pekalongan with heaps of miso paste stir fried with chilli, shalllot and more spices.

Mind you, there are more than 30 different varieties of 'soto' or chicken soup all over Indo, usually named after the local area it comes from (hence: Soto Pekalongan, soto padang, soto betawi, soto bandung, soto kudus and what not). Sorry, it's not always chicken, can be beef and evey single part of the animal, or even buffalo meat like I later found out about this Pekalongan version (!@#), but never pork or seafood. Can be with or without bean sprout or thinly sliced cabbage, with or without noodles, rice noodles or glass noodles, with or without boiled egg, clear or with coconut milk  

Then Kepiting (=crab) Pak Sukardi - we ordered "two crabs, please", thinking of 1 crab for each bugleader as the juniors wanted traditional fried chicken with traditional sambal (chili sause with shrimp paste). Two huge servings arrived, of 3 crabs each!! Oh, it costs us rp 50,000 or approx au $7 per serving, and almost 2 hour effort to finish them all.....
