There are two “Shi Le Yuan” 實叻園 found within Redhill Food Centre – one serving Kway Chap, the other Teochew Muay (porridge).
And while you are there are the food centre, other stalls you can check out include Fu Ming Cooked Food (selling Carrot Cake), Hua Kee Chicken Rice, Yan Chicken Wings and Bee Hoon, Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon, and Hong Seng Curry Rice.
Shi Le Yuan 實叻園 (selling Kway Chap) was once listed in the Michelin Guide Singapore in 2017, and made its return back in the 2019 list with a Michelin Plate.
This is considered one of the best Kway Chap you can find in Singapore, though its reputation may not be as famous as some of the others such as Garden Street Kway Chap (Serangoon Garden), Quan Lai Kway Chap (MacPherson), Blanco Court Food Centre Kwap Chap (Old Airport Food Centre), Blanco Court Kway Chap (Holland Drive Food Centre), and Cheng Heng Kway Chap and Braised Duck Rice (Holland Drive).
We have to agree that Kway Chap is not a dish for everyone, comprising of braised pork belly and offal such as intestine, skin and other parts; paired together with flat, broad rice sheets called the kway in a soupy soy sauce base.
There is usually a moderate queue at Shi Le Yuan, and the Kway Chap is affordably priced at $3 or $4 for individual portion, $6 or $7 if you intend to share. (Though I read online reviews portions could be bigger.)
What I enjoyed was that the kway (rice noodles) was very smooth, and broth was light and not overly rich.
The fried shallots also added a delightful crisp and fragrance.
It can be accompanied with an assortment of ingredients like pig’s intestine and skin, fish cake, hard-boiled eggs, tau pok, and tofu, all braised together in the sauce.
I enjoyed that the intestines were soft and without that wonky after-taste. Perhaps the pork belly could have been softer, and customers may prefer tender and fattier melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Compared to some other stalls which are usually heavier and dark braising sauce, could tell that this takes on a milder and perhaps ‘healthier’ approach. Maybe it has got to do with the customer base being generally more elderly.
Have to acknowledge that not all customers would thoroughly enjoy this style.
Also available are Pig’s Organ Soup and Meat Ball Soup. The couple-hawkers were friendly and sincere as well
