Balinese chicken soup

This famous chicken soup is my personal favourite in Bali. It is always cooked to perfection and the noodles just melt in your mouth. Head Chef of Banyan tree Ungasan, Imam Fayumi, was so kind to cook it specially for us one night and he has even shared his special recipe with us.

The soup is pretty quick and easy to make and you will absolutely love the authentic taste. Let us know how you go!
