One thing that many of us Singaporeans love to indulge in is some good-old kway chap. This sinful yet satisfying dish is a popular favourite that is sold at multiple hawker centres all over Singapore. Despite looking so simple, a dish like kway chap is not easy to prepare. It requires a lot of tedious preparation such as proper cleaning of the innards as well as long hours of braising.
Tucked away at in Blk 216 Bedok Market and Food Centre is Chai Chee Kway Chap, a humble stall that serves up some pretty decent kway chap for when the cravings come at you hard and fast. This is one of the few stalls at Blk 216 Bedok that has a long, snaking queue. As Singaporeans, we all know that if there is a queue, it means the food is probably good, so we had high expectations of this place.
For just S$3.40, we managed to get a pretty substantial plate of offals as well as a generous bowl of kway.
We like how the intestines here were fresh and properly cleaned, but also brimming with a heady, aromatic note of the braising sauce. The ingredients—from the pork belly, the offal, right down to the hard-boiled egg—were all well cooked.
There was also a decent amount of servings of juicy pork belly, tau pok as well as half a hard-boiled egg. The kway was also nice and smooth and we appreciate how the soup for the kway was not too salty and overwhelming.
All in all, it was a pretty filling meal that left us full and satisfied. We definitely won’t mind coming back here again when the kway chap cravings strike.
