If u are craving for mutton soup?What will come to mind?BOON KENG!
I’ve been here since my youth.But back then,there were 2 different stalls.I always got them mixed up.Currently there are still 2 stalls,but Im not sure whether it’s opened.Cos I heard that it has been bought over by the 1st stall and all that.Well, enough about politics, lets just dig in.
Upon reaching there,I noticed there were many staff crowding around.And as I bring up my camera to take shots,some come close and asked.”Are u from Malaysia?” I felt amused perhaps, only tourists come and take photos.I explained my “voluntary” work and immediately they were so happy.One even surf my blog on the spot in his blackberry.And some offer me some of their recommendations like cheese prata shop near the NUS.
It was a big chirpy family! I get to snap some happy faces.And then I sat down and put on a serious front.Hmm, unsure what to order.Actually I heard there is Torpedo soup (mutton/bull’s balls) and i asked them,whispered in their ears and was tickled silly at my own antics.They said they dont sell that and look at me,wondering..I guess they were amused too.(MB008, u tricked me!!Im gonna get u for this!! *lol)
The food came in a jiffy.It was delicious.The soup is smooth and delicious.Fyi,we ordered the mutton meat and innards soup.Erm,the innards was so-so.Im not so into mutton innards but the mutton meat soup was good!No need to add additional pepper or soyasauce given.It was good as it is!
Soft mutton meat…dip those baguette and let it soak the mutton goodness.YUM!
The tripe was soft but dont really like the innards…
Then we also ordered the chicken rice next door.It was surprisingly good!The chicken is very crispy and it was yum!Then my eyes wandered and fell upon an indian stall.Ordered beef steak.It was ok.Some parts are overburnt thus there are some charred bitter parts.Teh tarik was good too.
It was a pleasant experience with great food and good laugh with the friendly staff.Weekends,often the soup will finish early.They will close when their soup are sold out.Often weekdays will be about 11pm-12am.Weekends perhaps from 8pm onwards?
