Selangorlicious Soto Sg Serdang
When Tourism Selangor Launched their Selangorlicious campaign, my mind just couldn’t start scanning and remembering back all the good places that I’ve dined in Selangor, especially their delicious street food. Living in Selangor for more than 20 years, gave me the opportunity to introduce some great places that not many have even heard off. Next place that I would like my followers to try is the best ever Soto (It is a traditional soup mainly composed of broth, noodles, meat and vegetables) which is simply known as Soto Sg Serdang, Kapar. This stall has been in operations since 1986, and with 26 years of experience in the Soto making business.
It is named as Soto Sg Serdang or Soto Sungai Serdang simply because of where it is located, at Sungai Serdang. Now, let me attempt to guide you on how visit this place. Trust me, my direction would be the best because I’m here at least 2 or 3 times a month. From Klang, you’ll need to head towards a town called Kapar using Jalan Kapar. This will roughly take 20 minutes drive. Once you pass Kapar town, keep on heading northwards towards Jeram and Kuala Selangor. Now, the tricky part, as soon as you pass Kapar town, you’ll be on a straight double lane road. Drive for about another 5 minutes and you’ll come accross a right curve, this is where you’ll need to keep a look out on your left for a turning towards Sungai Serdang, turn into this road. Follow this tiny road, which will then curve towards the left and after passing a school and a mosque, the Soto Sg Serdang will be seconds away and located on your right. You’ll notice a row of 3 shops that is made out of wood.
Soto Sg Serdang have been featured on Malaysia’s local paper, the Berita Harian. Do not expect a great looking stall, because the area can be quite rundown. This is one of the best Soto that I’ve tasted in Selangor. There are only 2 sizes that you can order which is priced at RM4.50 for the large portion and RM3.50 for the smaller one. The Soto contains rice noodles, compressed rice cake (nasi impit), chicken pieces, vegetables, peanut and all drenched in a chicken flavored broth. A must is to add their specially made sauce that is mixed with Soya Sauce and minced chilies. As for drinks, they have the regular canned drinks and local Malaysia beverages (teh tarik, milo ice, coffee and so on). If you’re lucky, you may also get to try their Tapai Pulut.
So if you happen to hear north of Selangor, do give this place a try and I’m quite sure you’ll love it. Do note on their opening times, they start as early as 10.30am in the morning till 7pm every single day. After their evening prayers, they continue again from 8.30pm till late night, usually upwards to 1am. They do not operate on Wednesday nights. Owned and run by Muslims, the Soto Sg Serdang is Halal.
