Malinau has to be one of the chicken-soup capitals of the world. We seemed to end up having it everywhere we went.

It became our regular breakfast at a place down the street, which served it up with plenty of hard-boiled eggs and rice vermicelli, plus limes, chili sauce, and a big bowl of rice on the side. Soup for breakfast takes some getting used to, but all that salty liquid seems like a pretty good idea if you're going to be out sweating in the hot sun all day.

And, most important, they had good kopi susu.

We call it "soto" in Bahasa Indonesia. The one that you had in Malinau is soto ayam (chicken clear soup). The difference between soup ( sop in Bahasa Indonesia) and soto is the spices we use inside the broth.
