With the phrases ‘Selamat Datang’, which means welcome in Malay, etched on its pink and white signboard (eclipsing the precise title of the stall), it’s no surprise why queues are shaped at a frantic tempo at Warong Pak Sapari positioned at Adam Highway Meals Centre.

Formalities apart, Warong Pak Sapari is claimed to have the most effective mee soto and mee rebus on the island. Although my pure plan of action was to be sceptical, the truth that it’s nonetheless operating after 5 many years modified my manner.

Warong Pak Sapari - Mee Soto and Mee Rebus

Warong Pak Sapari’s spotlight dishes had been the Mee Soto (S$3.80) and Mee Rebus (S$3.80) which was precisely what I obtained. I additionally added a Bergedil (S$1.20) to my Mee Soto. There have been additionally different soup-related dishes akin to Rooster Soup (S$5.80), Rooster Ft Soup (S$5.80), Rooster Gizzards Soup (S$5.80), Mutton Tendon Soup (S$6.80), Beef Tripe Soup (S$6.80) and Rooster Porridge (S$3.80).

Warong Pak Sapari - Mee Soto

The Mee Soto comes with both bee hoon or yellow noodles, however I opted for the latter for the purist expertise. It was additionally topped with spring onions and beansprouts, and at this level, I don’t actually thoughts them as a lot. There was additionally roughly shredded hen that wasn’t as fantastic as I anticipated. 

You additionally had the choice so as to add on sambal kicap pedas which is a spicy darkish soy sauce, to which I excitedly agreed.

My first sip of Warong Pak Sapari’s Mee Soto broth made me want my mouth had a better tolerance for decent meals, as I discovered myself wanting one other with out going by all the trouble of blowing it to make sure it cooled down.

The soto style wasn’t as distinguished as those I had utilizing pre-packaged mee soto starter packs. This had a surprisingly deep style with refined hints of sweetness, in all probability stemming from the hen meat that was cooked with the broth. 

The sambal kicap pedas, which by now had change into one with the soup, added an expertly measured spice that complemented and never countered the savoury sweetness of the broth. This might be served as it’s, with no noodles or toppings and I wouldn’t query it. It was that good.

It took me possibly seven scoops earlier than realising I had yellow noodles in my bowl. It had a pleasant chew and didn’t get soggy at the same time as I took my time to slurp away on the soup. As a latest beansprout believer, it added a pleasant crunch particularly when paired with the soup.

The important thing to consuming Bergedil with Mee Soto is to permit the soup to soak into the potato fillet, permitting it to interrupt down into mini-starchy goodness. And that was precisely the way it went. It got here with a welcoming creamy texture and style. 

As good because it was, I assumed that S$1.20 for a chunk of Bergedil was a bit of steep, particularly because it racked up the Mee Soto price to S$5 per bowl.

The hen was properly cooked regardless of being a thicker minimize. Though it nonetheless had a superb chew, the flavours of the hen weren’t wealthy, which I assumed was a superb factor for the reason that broth was already that good.

Warong Pak Sapari - Mee Rebus

Not like the Mee Soto, the Mee Rebus was served in an ordinary trend. There wasn’t something out of the bizarre because it had your staple boiled egg, fried tofu, chilli slices and a slice of lime. As anticipated, the gravy was thick and required a superb mixing to correctly unfold the gravy amongst the noodles.

Although the Mee Rebus had an analogous candy and savoury style to the Mee Soto, the feel was what made the distinction. The viscosity made the Mee Rebus style ‘heavier’ and had a touch of nuttiness. 

Once more, the toppings added a lot to the dish, particularly with the additional chewiness from the fried tofu and the creaminess of the boiled egg. Nevertheless, the sliced chilli nonetheless had loads of seeds in them so watch out as they will get fairly spicy.

Regardless of tasting good, after the wonderful Mee Soto, good simply doesn’t minimize it anymore. As such, the Mee Rebus fell under the heights reached by the Mee Soto.

Remaining ideas
