Penang - "Sup Torpedo" aka Bull's Penis Soup from Sup Hameed

klyeoh | Oct 4, 201408:29 PM     1

It really didn't come as a surprise to many of us when we learnt that Sup Hameed's "Sup Torpedo" (bull's penis soup) was featured in Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown". Sup Hameed offers a plethora of Indian-Muslim (known locally as "mamak") eats: from crisp "roti canai" (paratha) to spicy "Mee Goreng" noodles, and of course the Penang Indian-Muslim staple: Nasi Kandar (rice with a selection of curries).

We were here last night to sample the "Sup Torpedo": cuts of tendon-like, slightly-chewy bull's penis in a lightly-spiced broth. The soup was tasty, and the bits of organ was actually, palatable - just the thought of what we were eating made us feel a bit queasy, rather than the taste or texture of it.

At MYR6.50 (US$2) a bowl, served with a couple of thick slices of "roti Bengali" (local baked bread), it's quite a bargain.
