As I mentioned on my last week "Soto H. St. Mangkuto" post, I went to another famous place for Soto Padang named Bunda. It is located in Bendungan Hilir or more known as Benhil area.
Cindy, Jenz and I had to wait until 1 pm before we could have our lunch because it was on a Friday. On Fridays, this restaurant only opens after 1 pm because of Sholat Jumat (Friday Prayers).
As soon as I entered into this restaurant, I could smell the aroma of cloves. Hmmm.... Nice!
Soto Padang Daging - Rp. 23.000
Compared to Soto Padang Mangunkuto, this soto wasn't so oily and tasted rather bland for me.
The ingredients of the beef broth is the same. It got small pieces of fried beef, vermicelli, and also fried potato dumpling.
I asked for a bowl of the beef broth only. Interestingly, it tasted different than the complete Soto Padang bowl. From this broth, I could taste the herbs like the cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. It was really tasty!
Rice with pink rice crackers - Rp. 5.000
Teh Telor/ Teh Talua - Rp. 12.000
Sweet and a bit creamy, made from egg yolk, sugar, hot tea and lime.
1 USD = Rp. 9.805
