Where to get nice kway chap? Is there nice kway chap in Bukit Timah Market? We head down to try out 138 Kway Chap & Porridge for this food review.
Kway was silky smooth, infused with the dark savoury gravy, which wasn’t overpowering yet delivering the needed soy sauce flavour. The mixed plate assortment of ingredients was definitely a treat. It comprises of salted vegetables, mildly savoury and crunchy. Halved spiced fishball was springy and pleasantly satisfying. Small and large intestines were without any hint of foul smell, thoroughly washed and perfectly braised, chewy and infused with their delectable gravy.
Pig skin was almost jelly-liked, elegant and accentuating. Taupoks were soaking with their laboriously made gravy, yet still retaining its fluffy texture, giving the bitful satisfaction. Braised meat was an absolute treat, tenderlicious, while still having its irresistible meaty flavour. Finally, their chili sauce was an assault to the senses, acidic base while delivering the spicy sensation. An absolute necessity to marry with their other irresistible ingredients.
The only pet-peeve we had with it was definitely their portion of ingredients. Kway was still alright, but items such as intestines could do better with a piece or two more. ^^
Be prepared to queue up for for at least 10 to 15mins if you are visiting them during lunch time. But they are really fast and friendly, from the friendly uncle chopping up the stuff, the auntie serving up the kways, to the lady taking orders.
At $5 a plate, Kway Chap at 138 Kway Chap & Porridge was certainly delicious and satisfying. But at that price, portion was slightly underwhelming.
