CRAVING for some homemade soto?
Situated along Jalan Hamzah Alang in Meru, Klang, Soto Iqbal has been in operation for almost five years offering its signature soto ayam.
Muhd Iqbal Meskon started the business with his wife, Nur Shahfiza Muhd Abidin and they sell a minimal number of dishes such as mee hoon sup, mee sup and chicken feet soup, in addition to the soto ayam.
The soto comes in two sizes — small (RM4) and large (RM5).
Muhd Iqbal said most customers would order the bigger portion.
What makes the couple’s soto special is that they serve chicken pieces instead of shredded chicken.
“Usually, soto is garnished with shreds of chicken breast but we do it differently here. This is to make the dish more filling,” said Muhd Iqbal.
It is served with a generous amount of nasi impit, fried cellophane noodles and a piece of fried chicken, then garnished with peanuts and chopped fresh coriander.
It is good comfort food, especially on a cold, rainy day.
The fried chicken was tender and complemented the other ingredients in the bowl.
Iqbal makes fresh soto every morning. “It is my own recipe, and cooked based on my personal preference and liking,” he said.
Warung Soto Iqbal is located at Lot 2151-D Persiaran Hamzah Alang Meru, Klang.
It opens from noon to 7pm and is closed on Friday.
