Soto forever

Soto is a dish that I could be happily constrained to eat for the rest of my life. It's kind of a breakfast/lunchish soup (a lot of restaurants sell out by early afternoon) with rice or noodles, chicken or beef, sprouts and scallions (usually), sautéed garlic slivers and other yummy goodness, depending on the restaurant and town. Most of the soto I ate was on Java, but Makassar serves another variety they call coto (CHOE-toe), and we found DIY soto on a hotel breakfast bar on Kalimantan as well. By the time we made it down to breakfast, it had been ravaged.
