Being a Malaysian, one should embrace every facet of the Malaysian culture, and that naturally includes food. It is hence quite surprising to me that many of us can name more Japanese dishes than traditional Malay dishes.

Welcome to 1Malaysia, and today we are going to Sup Kaww! The very name of the restaurant is a combination of Malay and Hokkien words that simply spells “thick soup”.

The restaurant is situated opposite the side entrance of Kelana Jaya Giant hypermarket, directly behind the Shell that is by the 6-8pm weekday parking lot – LDP.

While not spotting any doors, there’s a big al fresco dining area as well as roof covered tables for your choosing.

The menu here is pretty comprehensive, there are various types of Malay soup (including sup tropedo if you like), vegetable, squid, beef, chicken, and seafood prepared in different methods – masak merah (red sauce), paprik, kunyit, and so on. There’s also nasi ayam (chicken rice) and a few other types of soup noodle too.

For the two of us, I ordered a petai udang (bitter bean with prawns), daging masak merah (beef with red sauce), sup tulang (beef bone soup), and a couple telur dadar (Malay style omelete).

Like most traditional Malay dishes, the prawns in petai udang wasn’t peeled, but it was otherwise a dish with a kick. Being a petai lover, I’d probably ask for extra petai (and them not being split) the next time.

Daging merah was a combination of sweet and spiciness that goes well with white rice.

The sup tulang though, was really kaww! Very thick and flavourful, and is almost a meal by itself. Telur dadar, well, was just telur dadar, nothing out of the ordinary.

The other dishes I’ve tried there were all pretty good too, but I wouldn’t recommend their tomyam (try the one tomyam at ming tien instead).

Selamat  berjamu selera!

  1. I used to frequent their old place in Kelana Jaya. It’s the only place that’s open at night – used to live there. :)

  2. Why you look so grumpy in that photo lah? lol

  3. down with flu still can drink soup? I thought everything is basically tasteless????

  4. Me gosh. I love petai. Thank god I’m in KL now for the pictures of petai makes me crave for this stinky delight!

  5. On a rainy day like today, the sup tulang look very inviting! (Runs off to Pudu to get Sup Kambing instead!)

  6. I think the last sentence shud read “selamat menjamu selera” – but then again, soo hsia may know better than me when it comes to correct grammar :p

  7. Aiyo. No wonder lah. Poor thing! – hope ur feeling better now…

  8. Good. I pass by this area on a daily basis. Sometimes eating Malay food (with a pinch of Thai influence) is a great diversion from the usual Chinese/Western fares.

    Especially like their peppery soups, telur dadar, daging merah and tom yam.
    Though kind of predictable
