One of the most popular stalls in Serangoon Garden Food Centre, Garden Street Kway Chap is known for its diners lining up to buy their highly rated kway (rice noodle sheets) and braised meats.
Founded in the 1940s by the late Mr. Koh, it has been run by grandson Jason since 2005.
Jason has occasionally been featured in TV programmes as he was a qualified pilot before deciding to take over the stall.
On its Facebook, there was a tongue-in-cheek message of customers being served their pilot Jason Koh.
However, do note that waiting time can be long, say about 30 minutes or more, even if you see a relatively short queue of about 6 – 7 pax in line.
Jason prepares, cuts, and arranges his food meticulously, so do be prepared to wait.
A meal for one would be $4.50, while a two persons portion would be about $7 – 8. Their Kway Chap overall has a noticeably lighter flavour compared to other stalls.
It comes with regular bowls of kway (rice sheets) in a broth, accompanied with tau kwa, fishcake, taupok, and plump braised peanuts.
For serious appetites, a bigger bowl of kway is a must.
The boiled flat rice sheets aka kueh were delicately smooth, silky and not unpleasantly too thick.
The brown soup base, made with from a home recipe of 15 ingredients, is boiled for at least 2 hours to develop its robust, herbal taste.
Their kway chap has a noticeably lighter flavour compared to other stalls.
As for the platter of their meticulously cut meats, it included pork belly, pig trotter, pig intestine, pig stomach, pork skin, and lean meat.
Though lean, they were not dry but still tender and well braised.
Intestines are prepared well and cooked properly, leaving out the unappealing stench and retaining a springy texture. Pork skin and belly slices were tasty and tender.
Some customers used to the heavy-tasting and darker braised offal parts may find this too light though.
Don’t forget their in-house Salted Veggies and Cooked Peanuts.
