Blanco Court Food Centre (3rd Storey)Kway Chap 多丽哥粿汁
Though this food centre is one of the biggest in Singapore, locating the stall is not that difficult, just look for the longest queue and you will most likely find yourself standing in front of the stall. We often saw the snaking line and gave it a pass. Still, our glutton nature won out in the end. We had to find out: why is this kway chap worthy of a 30 minute wait?
$18.50, that was how much we spent to try the food, as we ordered most of the items available on the menu.
The bowl of kway chap has the right texture of chewiness and softness, and a dousing of the braised dark sauce proved to be a good complement to the bowl of soupy kway. Not bad for a start.
We requested for braised pork with more lean meat, and we were satisfied with their nicely braised meat which was tender and flavorful.
Pig intestines and other viscera may not be our favorite but was still one of the best amongst all the kway chap stalls that we had tried. At least there was no whiff of the unpleasant smell that’s a tell-tale sign of innards that haven’t been cleaned properly.
The salted vegetable and other assortments e.g. tau pok (dried beancurd) and braised egg were luscious and a good accompaniment to the meal.
When it comes to famous Kway Chap, the other Blanco Court kway chap at Serangoon garden food centre is probably its closest match; (both bear the same name even though they are managed by two totally different bosses). The two stalls attract equally strong supporters though there are some differences between the two. Which is better? Well, we applaud the presentation from the Serangoon garden stall, which is more enticing compared to the rather sloppy serving from the one at Old Airport Food Centre. But we do value substance over style – and in terms of taste, this Old Airport Road one wins out for sure.
