Imagine my joy when I got the last plate of Kway Chap at about 2 plus pm. Customers behind me were turned away, or informed ”Only tau pok left!”
Fans of Kway Chap often troop to Blanco Court Food Centre (3rd Storey) at the sprawling Old Airport Road Food Centre to get their fix of this 2-part Teochew dish.
To-Ricos Guo Shi has also been included in the Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore 2019
Let’s clear some of the confusion first.
This stall has several names, from “Blanco Court Food Centre (3rd Storey)”, “Blanco Court Kway Chap” (unofficial name) to “To-Ricos Guo Shi”, so it may get a bit confusing for newbies or tourists.
The stall in Old Airport Road is the original shop, and it used to have a branch at Ci Yuan Hawker Centre but that has just closed.
There are two other “Blanco Court” Kway Chaps – Blanco Court Kueh Chap at Holland Drive (44 Holland Drive, 02-02) and Blanco Court Garden Street Kway Chap at Serangoon Gardens (49A Serangoon Garden Way 01-21). They are all NOT related.
Queuing may take more than 20 minutes before you can allow the silky smooth kway to glide over tongue and sink your teeth into the traditionally braised pig offal.
They have sets for or 1 or 2 persons, and you can order an add-on if you like additional ingredients or innards.
Ingredients that can be bought separately include pig trotters ($5), big intestines ($4), pig’s stomach ($4), pork belly ($4), pig skin ($1, $2), tau kwa (80cents), to braised eggs (60 cents)
The favourite part in the entire plate was the intestines, cut in large bite-size pieces, are spongy tender yet not springy. Interesting to note that the stall does not offer small intestines.
Some of the other components were more to the average side, which I wished had a more braised taste. The pork slices were slightly leaner and blander than I wished.
The other highlight was the kway itself, broad yet thin and slippery smooth.
The fragrant soy sauce broth was mildly sweet and herbal, complemented by the aroma of fried shallots.
What makes people come back to Blanco Court is that its serving size was substantial for the price.
They also prepare and cook their intestines properly, making sure they leave no stench nor bitterness in them.
