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.
