Singapore: Indo Kitchen, Lucky Plaza

M_Gomez Apr 18, 2011 08:53 PM

I love a good mutton soup, whether it's Mamak with red-coloured spiced soup, or Hainanese style redolent of Chinese herbs. But Indonesian style mutton soup is a bit hard to find here in Singapore and I liked it ever since I tried it years ago in Jakarta.

So it was a pleasant surprise when my Indonesian best friend (and part-time mahjong kaki), Lydia, told me that she found authentic Javanest mutton soup at Indo Kitchen, 2nd floor of Lucky Plaza. We went there yesterday and it was good! My mouth is watering even as I type this post. Keep this a secret amongst us Chowhounds, okay? :D

    Do you mean "Sop Kaki Kamping", which literally is translated as Lamb leg soup? That is interesting, I can never find it in Singapore. It has always been one of my favorites in Jakarta. Do they sell the offals as well? I would have to go there and take a look. Thanks so much for this info.

    BTW, where do you go for the Hainanese style herbal mutton soup? There is a decent one at Adam Road Food Centre but my favorite one is at Toa Payoh Lor 7 Food Centre.

      Yes, that was it! Sop kaki kambing. I didn't notice any offal but they may have. The sop betawi also seems very popular amongst young Indonesians there (maybe students from UWC), also nasi rames, nasi uduk, soto mie, keredok etc.
      Let me know if you like the mutton soup.

        I'm not a good judge of this, but I've had herbal mutton soup at the Kovan hawkers center that I enjoyed.

        What qualities do you look for in this?

        I was back at Lucky Plaza today but couldn't find Indo Cafe! Did it move?

          Can't help you there, Martha. I used to have Indonesian/Malay food every once in a while for some variety when back in Singapore, but since I moved to KL (with *only* Malay food available for lunch around my office vicinity), I'd actually developed a phobia for Malay food - I guess *too much* can sometimes *not* be a good thing :-(
