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 CourtNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    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.

    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.

    How about secluding yourself away from the hustle and bustle and blissfully dine in a quaint restaurant surrounded with lush foliage serving home-style Western fare? Give a break to mushroom soup and gobble down their thick and rich Oxtail Soup. Each mouthful greets with strong aromatic taste, thanks to the chopped cilantro and tang of pepper. Delicate chunks of meats and colourful greens are laden into the soup, offering texture and taste with every mouthful.
