Hai Fa Kway Chap 海发粿汁
It has been a long time since my last visit to the stall, perhaps five to seven years ago or probably even more. However, this is one of the kway chap stalls that is deeply ingrained in our memories. Something that can stay in a person memory is usually the best or the worst memory, and this is especially true when come to food.
Hai Fa Kway Chap
We remember the stall simply because of it scrumptious taste of kway chap. You may wonder why we part with the stall for such a long time without visiting here again? Isn’t it worth going back again and again if the food is so good? Well, the reason is straight forward; we don’t condone hawkers that are cocky and arrogant. Then, why are we back here again after so many years? Reason is that simple; we observed and found they have improved in the attitude, so we decided to give them a try.
We ordered a mixture of braised pork, tau pok, intestine and eggs. Of course, a bowl of kway chap. The kway in the kway chap was not as clear as those we eaten years ago, slightly less smooth as well, and the soup was a bit diluted and less tasty compared to last time we tried.
The braised pork, tau pok, intestines and the heavenly braised eggs were still well marinated and soaked up all the essence of the gravy. The intestines were well cleaned and did not have the stench of the viscera parts. We especially love the braised eggs, the familiar nostalgia taste crept stealthily back into our taste buds when the egg was delivered in our mouth. The braised eggs were very different from all other Kway Chap stalls, it was not an ordinary braised egg but an egg with its gravy flavour pervaded completely into every spot of the egg. It was so nice that you will find the reviving of this flavourful eggs inlaid in your memory permanently once you try it. The eggs were the first item we ordered and this is one of the die die must eat items from the stall. The flavour is simply zesty and luscious that is regrettable if you missed it out in your order.
Overall, Hai Fatt kway chap may have slightly dropped in the standard of their kway, however, the standard of all other varieties of the dishes were fortunately maintained – especially the eggs, it is simply heavenly. Do note that the price tends to be on the high side, you easily be charged five to six dollars for a person’s share.
