5) Keong Kee Herbal Soup @ Jalan Pudu, KL

Operating for over 30 years, Keong Kee Herbal Soup is one of the mainstays in the Pudu area. You can locate their stall just opposite Shaw Parade, where they serve different kinds of steamed soups. But of all the soups they serve at Keong Kee, their must-order item has to be the signature Coconut Chicken Soup. True to its name, they literally serve the soup in an old coconut shell.

You can also find other soups available here such as Ginseng Root Chicken Soup, Lotus Root Pork Rib Soup, and even Terrapin Chinese Herbal Soup.
