I was in the mood for nasi lemak, but the long queues discouraged me. I walked around and spotted this stall that sells Mee Soto and Soto Ayam.
There was also a queue of customers which suggests the food could be good. The stall has also garnered some awards for good Mee Soto.
I joined the queue and the queue of 4 people was cleared in 5 minutes. I ordered the soto ayam ($3) with an additional bergedil (fried potato patty) for an additional $0.50.
The stall owner ladled soup that is boiling in a stainless steel container at the back of the stall, into my order of mee soto.
There was cut rice cake, bean sprouts, shredded chicken meat with sliced parsley. Overall good taste and the chilli is potent and spicy. Suggest to put the chilli in side saucer instead of directly into your bowl, if you are afraid of your food being too spicy.
The stall also have mee soto ($3), which have the same ingredients as the soto ayam except for the cut rice cakes, and beef tripe soup ($6) which I will try on my next visit.
This was last Friday when we went to Adam Road Food Centre for a team lunch with my boss who's quite a foodie himself. My initial choice was the popular Nasi Lemak stall, Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak, but unfortunately they were closed for afternoon prayers and I didn't want the prawn noodles. So I stalked my boss to Selamat Datang Mee Soto and Mee Rebus Stall. Boss went for the Mee Rebus and I ordered the Soto Ayam that Makansutra gave some chopsticks.
When I saw my boss slurping and enjoying his Mee Rebus, I couldn't stand it any longer as Soto Ayam in it's minute portion didn't satisfy me. I was back at the same stall to queue for the Mee Rebus. The aunty peered at me come back for more and I exclaimed, "Mee Soto too little. But she just smiled and get busy with my order. There were a few things I like about the Mee Rebus here. The gravy was intense enough, the green chilli was spicy and the noodle cooked al dente. Shiok-amaniac! Certainly prefer Mee Rebus to the Soto Ayam.

Ordered a Soto Ayam polite but grumpy lady retorts that there is only MEE REBUS!
"Well, so there is no mee soto nor others?"
"ONLY MEE REBUS!!"
The stall front was filled to the brim with various ingredients yet only Mee Rebus was available? Seeing how persistent I seemed, the uncle at the back of the stall remarked that the soup was not ready yet, perhaps about half and hour's time.
Meanwhile, we ate food from other stalls and in 30 minutes, there was a short queue, each ordering several packets of food! It seems that regulars know to come around 330pm.
Though the portions are not large, the soup was quite tasty, but I am not sure if it was worth a 5/6 rating. Try it and decide for yourself!
