Being the start of school holidays, we figured that the queue today at Lao San Kway Chap would be relatively shorter, so that was where we were headed for breakfast!
At 9.40am, there was just 4 customers ahead of us 🙂 Actually, this place is called 老三粿汁.猪什湯 Lao San Kway Chap & Pig’s Organ Soup, but we did not see anyone order any soup throughout our meal.
We ordered 大肠头, 大肠, 粉肠 (3 types of large and small intestines/offals), 三层肉 Pork Belly, 豆干 Beancurd, 菜尾 Preserved Vegetables and 2 small bowls of 粿 Kway (broad rice sheets) for $17.20.
This was a more mild version of kway chap as compared to some of the heavily salted versions. The braised offals were very well-cleaned, which sometimes is a really rare find, for the cleaning process is very tedious. They were all tender and chewy, and mildly salty with a light sweetness, similar to the broth of the kway. The pork belly was tender too. The beancurd and preserved vegetables complemented the offals well, and we like that the preserved vegetables was not overly salty; in fact, it was sweet and salty. The rice sheets were firm and chewy, and we liked the broth too.
While we were enjoying our food, the queue grew to the width of the coffee shop space 😮 Do come earlier to avoid the crowd!
