The best beef soup dish in Makassar, from coto, soto to palubasa.

09:26

MAKASSAR citizen like to eat their meals accompanied with some soup. No wonder, MAKASSAR is popular with its Coto, Soto and Palubasa. YES, Coto and Soto is two different kind of dish (Not a typo). A simple way to distinguish between coto, palubasa and soto is that soto and palubasa will mostly serve with rice, while coto is served with ketupat (rice dumpling). Palubasa has similar base to Coto, but it has fried shredded coconut meat and often served with raw egg yolk. Because of that, Palubasa often has thicker flavor than the rest. Some of popular restaurant that served this dishes are:



1. Coto Nusantara

LOCATION: JL. NUSANTARA, KOTA MAKASSAR, SULAWESI SELATAN (NEAR FORT ROTTERDAM)

OPERATION HOUR: 09.00 – 18.00

PRICE: PER JAN 2016, ± IDR 40.000,- / BOWL , KETUPAT  ± IDR 2.000,- / EACH, SWEET ICE TEA   IDR 5.000,-

PORTION: SMALL

SHORT REVIEW: PROBABLY THE MOST POPULAR RESTAURANT IN MAKASSAR. ON BUSY DAYS, YOU NEED TO COME HERE EARLY IF YOU WANT TO EAT HERE, BECAUSE THEIR COTO OFTEN OUT OF STOCK WHEN IT’S OVER 16.00 PM. FOR ME, IT’S A BIT OVERPRICE AND IT ISN’T PLEASANT TO DINE IN HERE (MAYBE BECAUSE IT’S TOO BUSY, PACKED WITH SO MANY CUSTOMERS WITH LITTLE SPACE). I PREFER TENDER AND JUICY MEAT MORE, THIS ONE IS KINDA CHEWY. BUT THE TASTE OF THE SOUP IS AWESOME NEVERTHELESS. THAT’S A REASON WHY THIS RESTAURANT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE TOP RESTAURANT IN MAKASSAR AS #1 ON TRIPADVISOR 2015.

2. Coto Daeng

LOCATION:JALAN DAENG SIRUA NO 10 MAKASSAR (BEHIND THE BIGGEST MALL IN MAKASSAR, PANAKKUKANG MALL)

OPERATION HOUR: 10.00 – 20.00

PRICE: PER JAN 2016, ± IDR 15.000,- / BOWL , KETUPAT  ± IDR 1.000,- / EACH, SWEET ICE TEA   IDR 3.000,-

PORTION: SMALL

SHORT REVIEW: IF YOU COME EARLY, YOU CAN FIND A LOT OF WEIRD TYPE OF MEAT, FROM BRAIN, TONGUE, CHEEK, LIVER, INTESTINE , LUNG, JUST NAME IT! THE PRICE IS CHEAP HERE, AND IT’S QUITE PLEASANT TO DINE IN ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONER. MANY LOCALS AND OFFICE WORKERS COME HERE FOR LUNCH. I THINK THEIR KETUPAT CAN BE IMPROVED, BECAUSE IT’S A LITTLE TO ROUGH FOR MY TASTE. YET, IT’S UNDENIABLE THAT THE COTO FLAVOR IS RICH! I LIKE IT MORE WHEN I APPLIED SOME SWEAT SOY SAUCE, A LITTLE BIT OF LIME JUICE AND HOT SAUCE INTO THE COTO. IF YOU’RE ON BUDGET, THIS RESTAURANT COULD BE YOUR BEST DEAL.

3. Sop / Soto Saudara Andalas 65

LOCATION:JL. SULTAN ALLAUDIN NO.58, KEC. MAKASSAR, SULAWESI SELATAN 90221

OPERATION HOUR: 07.00 – 12.00 AM

PRICE: PER JAN 2016, ± IDR 25.000,- / BOWL , RICE  ± IDR 4.000,- / EACH

PORTION:MEDIUM

SHORT REVIEW: DON’T BE MISTAKEN, SOTO SAUDARA IS A MENU DISH. THIS DISH IS POPULAR AMONG LOCALS AND YOU CAN FIND MANY RESTAURANT PUT THIS ON THEIR MENU. AMONG SO MANY RESTAURANT THAT OFFERED THIS MENU, SOP SAUDARA ANDALAS 65 IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST. IT TASTES QUITE SIMILAR FROM COTO MAKASSAR BUT SERVED WITH RICE INSTEAD OF KETUPAT. THE AROMATIC MOUTHWATERING  SOUP IS SO TEMPTING TO TRY FOR.

4. Pallu basa Serigala

LOCATION: JL. SERIGALA NO. 54, KEC. MAKASSAR, SULAWESI SELATAN 90132

OPERATION HOUR: 09.00 – 20.00

PRICE: PER JAN 2016, ± IDR 40.000,- / BOWL ,RICE  ± IDR 5.000,- / EACH, SWEET ICE TEA   IDR 5.000,-

PORTION: SMALL

SHORT REVIEW: THE ATMOSPHERE IS QUITE PLEASANT HERE ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONER. IT CAN BE VERY CROWDED AT LUNCH AND DINNER TIME. IT’S SURE THE BEST PALLU BASA IN TOWN AND IT’S MORE SPICY THAN THE OTHER PALLU BASA.YOU CAN CHOOSE WHETHER YOU ADD RAW EGG YOLK INTO THE SOUP OR NOT. I SUGGEST YOU TO TRIED IT WITH THE RAW EGG YOLK, BECAUSE IT WILL BRING THE SOUP TO ANOTHER LEVEL. YOU CAN REALLY TASTE THE FRIED COCONUT SHRED (SURENDANG) INSIDE THE THICK SPICY AROMATIC SOUP.  THE TASTE IS VERY RICH. SOME TURN OF EVENT IS THAT IT’S QUITE PRICEY!  IT’S WORTH FOR YOUR CULINARY ADVENTURE. IF YOU CAN’T EAT SPICY FOOD AND CRAVING TO EAT PALLU BASA, TRIED PALLU BASA ONTA, LOCATED IN  JL. ONTA LAMA NO. 109 MAKASSAR.
