"It smells so strong!". That was what my mother said when she poured my sup kambing from Adam Road into a corningware. She has probably never tasted mutton in her life and has no cravings for sheep meet. I do not particularly crave sheep meat either, but like sup tulang, sup kambing is one of the few bone dishes available in Singapore.
The smell was indeed strong, but in no way noxious strong. Rather, it was fragrant strong, aromatic from the spices used for the soup. And the soup carried a strong coriander flavour mixed with the aroma of mutton. Compared to the sup tulang I had from Newton, there was a good portion of melt-in-your-mouth meat and tendon attached to the four bones, enough for a meal.
This is Asian Paleo comfort food.
