This spartan sidewalk stall selling pig's organ soup and chicken rice opens each day in the evening after the shophouses in the old downtown have shut down for the day. Leong Kee has been operating since the 1970s: ladling out bowls of tender, slow-boiled pig's intestines, spleen, tripe, pig's blood cubes, tofu and salted mustard leaves which lent the peppery soup a sourish tinge. A kick-ass super-spicy red chilli dip is served on the side.
Business is brisk and the tables on the sidewalk are permanently filled with regular customers - mostly older KL-lites who know their local food heroes and where to find the best of the best in town.The food was superb - I never knew pig's intestines can taste this good! And the lovely pig's blood cubes - we'd not seen this in Singapore since the Singapore Health Ministry banned its sale for consumption in 1999. A meal here also seems like a trip down memory lane for most Singaporeans (and Malaysians, of course).
