In Indonesia it is called soto mie and considered as one variant of soto, while in Malaysia and Singapore it is called mee soto.
There are some variations of soto mie, it can be made of beef, chicken, or offals such as kaki sapi (cartilage and tendons of cow's leg) or tripes. People may exchange noodles for rice or rice vermicelli according to their preference. A combination of either noodle or rice vermicelli along with slices of tomato, boiled potato, hard boiled egg, cabbages, peanut, bean sprout and beef, offal or chicken meat are added. Broth is then poured over this combination. This soup is made from beef or chicken stock and some other spices.
