Tauto Pekalongan

{{totalReview}}
Tauto Pekalongan is a soup dish from Pekalongan, Central Java. Its name derives from the combination of “tauco”, a savory fermented yellow soybean paste, and “soto”, a popular Indonesian soup filled with broth, meat and vegetables. While tauto and soto consist of similar components, tauto is also completely unique as it features a generous amount of tauco in the broth. A hearty and aromatic dish that is an amalgamation of culinary cultures from China and Indonesia, it can be enjoyed on its own or with rice for a wholesome meal.
