Coto Makassar is an Indonesian soup made with beef and beef organs, which is originally from Makassar in Southern Sulawesi, Indonesia.
When I was in Jakarta, I decided to go to a restaurant, more like a covered street food stalls, called Coto Makassar Senen for my first try of this dish. The coto was served in small bowls, packed full of all sorts of organs like intestines, trip, and lungs. What I liked about the soup is that it had a nutty and sour taste, and it wasn’t salty at all - so it was up to you to add in your own salt to your preference.
Along with the Coto Makassar, there was also a big plate of ketupat, which are rice cakes, on the table ready to be eaten along with the soup. You can either eat them on their own, or you can break them up and add them to the soup and eat it altogether. Both Ying and I liked the Coto Makassar so well, that we each had two bowls.
