Best Sup Ekor in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Sup Ekor or literally translated as Oxtail Soup, is an old-fashioned comfort dish that has been losing its fame among the younger generations these days. Some claim it’s a traditional Hainanese cuisine while other say the English discovered the flavourful combination back in the 1960s, whoever it is, we are grateful to you. The Western take is rather a fusion of peppery and earthy punch. While, our Malaysian version kicks in with a little tangy and zesty flavour (with lemongrass, lime, chili padi), just the way we like it. Wholesome, simple and soul-warming, there is handful restaurants still serving this savoury delight, not a surprise in a state that takes heritage and history up its sleeves.

    Al Bismi Soup – Padang Brown Food Court

    Burrowed between bustling stretches of stalls, this humble little joint has been taking the locals by storm with traditional soups. Huge cauldrons filled with assorted soups such as chicken, beef and mutton are lined up in front and the aromatic fragrance just allures you to nab a bowl. Look beyond the regulars, dig in their oxtail soup, which is infused with rich herbs and spices, flooded with chunks of tender oxtails and sprinkled with spring onions. Pair the bowl with a slab of Bengali bread, a clean hit combo.

    This restaurant has relatively created a branding for soup, where Penangites habitually head to when their belly begs for a hearty bowl of soup. It’s regularly packed with patrons, everyone beaming with joy while slurping the bowls clean. Never miss their Oxtail version, a redolent bowl imbued with a heap of herbs and morsels of tender meats; it wins your heart at the first spoonful. Rainy days or cold nights, no worries they operate around the clock.

    Fairly a new contender to the Western food scene in Penang, renowned for pork dishes but doesn’t mean other food is to be passed over. To get your appetite moving, Oxtail Soup is the best bet, boiled with morsels of oxtails, heaps of herbs, celeries, tinge of pepper and paired with a slice of garlic bread. The oxtail is tender and juicy, it just melts in your mouth and the soup hits the right spot. Commodious indoor and outdoor seating and commendable service, worthwhile visit ensured.

    This famed and fabled restaurant has been mushrooming all over the island, thanks to their value-for-money Western fare that has never taken a dip in quality and quantity. Constantly mushroom soup showers the appetizer orders, yet their Oxtail Soup is praiseworthy too. The treacly bisque is served piping hot, filled with tender meats and dash of herbs. It’s best consumed with slices of garlic bread. Braving some of the colder days, just head into Mizi Bistro.
