A1 Kway Chap @ Kovan-Hougang Food Centre and Market,Singapore (Food rating: 4/5)

A Teochew cuisine, Kway Chap (果汁) served broad, flat rice noodles in a soup with pig offal / innards, beancurd, fried beancurd, preserved salted vegetables, braised boiled eggs, fish cakes and duck meat.

At the Kovan-Hougang Food Centre and Market, you will find a stall named A1 Kway Chap and Duck Rice. You will be amazed the long line of people queuing for the delicious, mouthwatering noodles mix. You may order either a set meal or ala carte depending on your preference. If you are not into innards, you may order side dishes like duck meat, egg, beancurd, and fish cakes. It is not necessary to order innards for this meal.

Since my last trip to A1, I am glad to have found this stall. The dining experience remained consistently enjoyable. The total amount was less than SGD15.

We ordered a set meal for two, which included the pig's innards, braised egg, fried beancurd and duck meat. The skin was chewy and full of collagen. The innards, particularly the intestines, were very well cleaned and did not leave a smelly and bitter aftertaste. The fried beancurd was soaked in the delicious broth for hours, which its aromatic fragrance had infused the beancurd. The duck meat was surprisingly delicious - tender, fragrant and appetising. The highlight of the entire meal was the chilli sauce mixed with lime juice, which was both spicy and sour, giving the food the extra oomph. (Food rating: 4/5)

The flat broad noodles were firm and chewy in the dark soy broth. The bowl of noodles were then garnished with fried shallots and Chinese coriander. The portion was just nice to accompany the side dishes.
