Steamsoup or Herbal soup is always been my favourite item in my own preference. When I was a kid, I was being thought by my grandma to drink a bowl of soup before my meal and that is how it spark my interested. Follow by herbal soup as I love the taste of it if its strong whereby alot of my friend say I am crazy. 🙂 Last round, when I work in KL, one of my regular place for steam soup is this Kong Kee Herbal Soup infront of Shaw Parade or behind Times Square under the tree.
Then later move out from KL and start to search for alternative and came across some bloggers blog about this place, Meng Kee Steam Soup at Taman Paramount, just right next to Giant Supermarket. Its one of a place that I have been couple of times already.
Its not located in a restaurant as they are just operating in a stretch of little hawker area. Seats are pretty limited and you have to wait quite a while if some days that you visit is pack with people. It was a perfect timing for me as during my last visit, it is raining and under that weather to enjoy pippin hot soup is perfect.
Menu is rather simple as you can order some side dish as the other half is their herbal steam soup menu. Not only that, as in the menu also do mention that which soups provides different effect, such as detox, nutrient, subside body heat and so forth.
One of a very common soup to reduce body heat is Bitter gourd soup @ RM 7
Nuduo Ginseng Soup (Teen Chat) which is more for blood circulation @ RM 9
Soup offering here are equally good compare to the one in KL as this place has been my substitute place for steam soup instead of driving all the way to KL. Soup here are steam to perfection that the aroma of each soup are pretty strong in taste to my liking and price is very reasonable. Surely this would be one of my recommended place for you if you wish to have a nice bowl of herbal soup.
