This is one of the Kway Chap not found in a hawker centre, and there are online reviews calling this the “atas Kway Chap”.
If you stay around MacPherson, then Quan Lai Kway Chap 泉来粿汁 or Chuan Lai Guo Zhi Wang should be a familiar name, being a supper favourite for many.
The stall located within “Sin Fong Restaurant” is opened till wee hours of 3am. (There is another popular Crab Wanton Noodles stall in this same coffeeshop.)
Quan Lai’s Kway Chap has been around for more than 50 years.
My recollection is that it was much more famous in the past, but perhaps fell slightly out of the radar due to the price point and inconsistencies.
Portions are generous but comes with a price at $12.00/person ($15.90 for delivery) with duck, more expensive the other typical Kway Chap stalls.
This Signature Set for 1 pax comes with braised duck, large intestines, homemade fishcake, tau pok and braised egg.
Ala carte add-ons are available, including braised pork belly, braised pig skin, trotters, stomach, tail and chicken feet.
Order their Fried Large Intestines ($18 for 2 pieces), enjoyably crispy outside and slightly chewy inside with little gamey taste.
The aka rice sheets are on the broader and thicker side (would have preferred something thiner), cooked together with the rich broth, absorbing all the flavours.
The broth was quite well-known with its strong spiced and herbal taste. While savoury, it is easy on the saltiness.
For the braised platter, they offer quite a portion duck meat aside from the usual pig intestines, pork belly, taupok, tofu, fishcake, and egg.
The duck meat is cooked Teochew style, some may find the slices on the plainer side, but people would enjoy the thick braising sauce.
Delivery with min order of $30 (range from $5 to $25 depending on location). Whatsapp +65 8609 6748.
