Chinese Chicken Herbal Soup


Chicken Herbal Soup

Chicken Herbal Soup is one of my favorite soup and normally I will cook soup twice in a week. This week, I pick chicken herbal soup is one of my soup dishes. At home, almost everyday mom cooks soup for us. She said soup is really good for our healthy. I did try chinese herbal chicken soup at Tuas (Singapore) when I worked last time, it costs me around SGD 10. The taste’s quiet nice but not much variety of ingredient. It’s just a plain soup and chicken.

Atek Restaurant

A delicious food does not necessary to find out at shopping mall with good ambiance.  Sometime small stall provide a good food rather than at restaurant. As a quote said that ” Don’t judge book by the Cover”. It means we should not prejudge the worth or value of something, by its outward appearance alone. I found out Duta Mas is one of best place to find a delicious food with a reasonable price.



You may find same type of restaurant at opposite of Atek Restaurant as well. But I never been there, perhaps I may try to figure it out one day. I saw a lot people went to Atek Restaurant instead of opposite restaurant. I was attract to go to Atek Restaurant and curious ” how delicious Atek’s Char siu and Sau ruo Rice”.

It has been a long time, I seldom eat char siu and sau ruo rice. Because I am unable to find a delicious char siu and sau ruo rice at Jakarta.  This time, Atek Restaurant is one of my restaurant list to visit . Anyway, I have been twice to visit Atek Restaurant. If you are in Medan (North-Sumatra), there are a lot delicious food that you may find out especially at Jalan Semarang Area.
