Merdeka Day is turning out to be wet and gloomy in Johor Bahru. So what better way to lift the spirits than by having a hot bowl of sup tulang kaki kambing?
A bowl of this soup at Jalan Kurniawan in Kebun Teh, JB cost RM5 and contains three pieces of mutton bone with some slivers of meat and gooey tendons still attached. There's a bit of sizzling sambal kicap if you want to spice things up. Note the straw that's provided for you to suck out the tasty bone marrow.
It's not doing the heart any favours but it sure is good for the soul!
Update 04.09.08 : In the comments section, I mentioned to Jabishah and Emila about another tasty soup concoction called Sup Tulang Merah.
Emila asked how Sup Tulang Merah looks like. Here's a pic taken at Beach Road Hawker Centre, Singapore. Sing $10 for 10 pieces of mutton bone. Sorry to show only the few remaining pieces. Didn't have time to snap a photo of the full plate. As soon as the plate arrived, my sons quickly swung into action...
