The ibu was delighted to see me and knew what i was about to order. A short while later, i was already gobbing off the soup, accompanied by tempe and tahu bachem bought from another stall. The soup contains shredded chicken meat, pieces of potatoes and carrots, and served with rice or bee-hoon. It is similar to Soto Ayam found in Singapore, minus most of the spices.
The ibu doesn't sell the best sop ayam in Bintan though. The best, to me, can be found about an hour away, in the village of Sri Bintan.
If you are a tourist in Bintan Resorts, take the route out towards the security post. At the simpang (junction), take a right and follow the road towards Tanjung Pinang. Once you reached the village of Sri Bintan, look out for a shophouse near the village chief's office. A bit off the beaten track, but believe me, its worth it.
