Have you heard of cholesterol soup? I have eaten this twice, and the location is right in front of the kampung melayu subang police station. This soup if eaten regularly by me will surely cause me sudden death. The ajinaikmoto seasoning aka MSG my god is intoxicating but the actual reason the soup is called cholesterol soup is its contents, as all the parts of the bovine, even the ones not usually sold is used.(Anthony Bourdain would be proud). The owner buys these up lock stock and barrel and cooks all together in the magical boiling pot of soup. So do not be surprised that other than beef parts, intestines and other internals and fats, you may also get some unidentifiable parts that is usually extremely fatty. That is how it gets its name and if you do not add the chilli soya sauce and lime cuttings, for me it would be extremely heavy to consume.Definitely not for dainty appetites. Another place that prepares something similar is at the quarters of Alam Shah mosque at Jalan Pasar KL. But it is not as heavy but it does also have a jumble of innards etc in it. So to have something nearer to KL this place will be my destination, but on Fridays the queue is extremely long so forget about dining at this time. Nonetheless if you still want a taste of Malay homemade soup, the stall besides the girls secondary school near there is good enough except unlike the shops mentioned before thus, the soup is offered as a side dish so do not expect it to be served hot as it is placed in a big pot of boiling soup. So you can forget about having a steaming bowl of soup here.
Recently I went to ikan bakar ASBA stall again, and wanted to have their beef rib soup because I had the flu. The taste of the soup was just alright but it had a lot of bone chips as it was made from short ribs and was not meaty at all even when I took two pieces. Thus it was only bearable as a side dish. Nonetheless the most rubbish place I have had beef soup was at the KLIA quarantine centre canteen that I was previously misinformed the Gear Box or knuckle soup was wonderful. The taste of the soup was palatable but what makes me mad was that the meat of the knuckle was cut away already, so when you get your knuckle soup there is only a small portion of meat. Hello Uncle, you think people can get full by just sipping the bone marrow ka?Just after sipping a few times the marrow is all gone and then what, you can get full just drinking the soup?This is definitely a place that will not see my return visit.
