Sup Gear Box

I was out with my parents in a joyride at Gombak and came across a lot of these Malay restaurants selling "Sup Gear Box", alongside the more commonly found "Sup Tulang", "Sup Ekor" etc. We got really curious what "Sup Gear Box" was, so we decided to give it a try.

So what is "Sup Gear Box"?

^Cow joint, probably the femur, cooked in spicy soup.

The soup was served with a steak knife and a drinking straw. The knife is obviously used to cut the meat and tendons, and the straw is to slurp the bone marrow. Didn't feel adventurous enough to taste the bone marrow, though. The soup and meat, however, tasted VERY good, but the tendons were too hard, so that was kind of disappointing, as I LOVE cow tendons. Would be nice to try this soup some place else where it is cooked longer to soften the tendons.

This bowl of soup cost RM26. The portion was enough for 2 to 3 persons. I would order this if I see it in a menu elsewhere.
