What's the origin of Sopa De Macaco?

In 2016, Facebook user Bettynho Zirigdum posted an album on his wall, containing photos of her mother-in-law’s special dish: monkey soup; with the caption saying “Sopa de Macaco, Uma Delicia

The album presented the steps of dish’s preparation in a grotesquely detailed manner: starting by giving the viewer an insight of how the monkeys are chopped up, finishing with Bettynho happily enjoying the meal.

The original post since then has been removed.
