Who Are The Top 4 Best Kway Chap In Singapore?
Kway chap, or kueh chap, is a traditional Teochew dish made of flat and broad rice sheets, boiled and doused in a gravy made with herbs and spices, served with braised meat, peanuts and various type of innards, hard-boiled eggs, beancurd, tau pok and preserved salted vegetables.
What’s considered to be a good kway chap? For us, it consists of:
– a flat rice sheet or “kway” that must be smooth, soft and not too thick.
– dark gravy sauce that must have the right touch and infused with the aroma of herbs and spices
– assorted braised items that must be tender and infused with the essence of gravy. Innards should be cleaned properly and absent of the porky smell.

Heng Kee Kway Chap 興記粿汁@ Sim Drive (Our Top pick!)
Heng Kee Kway Chap delectable flat noodles, braised items and tender pork knuckles were indeed succulent, the slurp-worthy breakfast that warrant topping up with more bowls of kway.
While the innards probably the most coveted ingredients for a kway chap stall, what truly catch our attention at Heng Kee Kway Chap was their braised pork trotter ($7 or $8 depends on the size), from our observation, most of the diners ordered this dish to go with the kway chap, curiosity made us decided to give it a try as well and its proven the diners know its best, the pig knuckle was fork-tendered and absorbed all the essence of the rich and flavourful gravy. It was incredibly delicious and went exceptionally well with the kway. Highly recommended dish to order.
Hai Fa Kway Chap
The high price and the arrogant attitude of the stall owner here are the main drawbacks. However, the savory braised assorted items perhaps are their best selling points. If they could work on the price and improve the service standard, perhaps Hai Sing could garner itself even more fans.
