Best kway chap stalls in Singapore
Kway chap is a divisive dish. Those who enjoy the combination of braised offal and kway in a soupy, dark broth really really adore the dish, while those who can’t stand eating innards stay a mile away. If you’re in the former camp, then you’ll also know that a really soul-warming bowl is a labour of love, and good ones are few and far between.
To help you get your cravings sorted, here are 17 best kway chap stalls in Singapore.

1. Double Spring Teochew Lor Duck Kway Chap
Image credit: @foodieagent1388
If you see long queues in Pek Kio Food Centre, it’s usually for Pin Wei Chee Cheong Fun, Wah Kee Prawn Noodles, or Double Spring Teochew Lor Duck Kway Chap. This stall is known for their Duck Kway Chap, of which prices start at $6 for a set that feeds one person. The portion comes with duck that is braised in-house daily, Teochew-style, to tender ends. Get your platter with a bowl of kway ($0.80) or their ultra-fragrant yam rice ($0.80).
Address: 41A Cambridge Road, #01-48, Pek Kio Food Centre, Singapore 211041
Opening hours: Tue, Thurs-Sun 8am to 3pm
2. Quan Lai Kway Chap

Having been around for more than 50 years, Quan Lai is a household name for kway chap in Singapore. Portions here are very generous—their 1 Pax Meal is priced at $5, but we recommend topping up $4 for Duck. The sets don’t come with carbs, so you also have to add on $0.80 for kway or $1 for yam rice. Another must-order from the store is their Fried Pork Intestines (from $12), which fans praise to be crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside.
Address: 558 MacPherson Road, Singapore 368223
Opening hours: Daily 9am to 3am
Tel: 6744 1252
3. Guan Kee Kway Chap

Kway chap sets at Guan Kee Kway Chap are priced at $3.50 for one person, or $5.50 if you’re seriously hungry. Their value-for-money portion sees tau pok, braised egg, pork skin, pork belly, fish cake, and pork intestines on the plate, served alongside their kway. The stall has been running since the 80s, and is a go-to for many in the Toa Payoh ‘hood.
Address: 210 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh, #01-24, Singapore 310210
Opening hours: Mon-Wed, 11am to 3:30pm, 4:30pm to 8pm, Sat-Sun 9:30am to 3:30pm, 4:30pm to 8pm
Tel: 9730 4033
4. Lao San Kway Chap

Every item on the menu at Lao San Kway Chap is boldly flavoured. From the burst of five spice and gravy when you bite into rounds of braised intestines, to the whiff of shallot oil that comes with their piping hot bowl of kway, it’s little wonder why diners here brave the queue for a portion. Prices here differ according to what parts you order, but expect to spend about $10 a head if you’re feeling peckish. There’s also a one-person set priced at an affordable $5.
Address: 232 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, #01-119, Singapore 560232
Opening hours: Fri-Wed 8am to 8pm
Tel: 9680 9196
5. 284 Kway Chap
Image credit: @thehungrypang
Only open from 8pm, 284 Kway Chap is a supper favourite for Bishan residents. Instead of there being fixed sets, pick and choose what you want to go with your kway ($0.80). Prices start at $0.70 for tau pok, and go between $1.50 to $3 for the various innards. For fans of really herbal, soy-rich kway chap, though, do note that the stall’s recipe is milder than most.
Address: 284 Bishan Street 22, Singapore 570284
Opening hours: Daily 8pm to 3am
6. Garden Street Kway Chap
Image credit: @sgfoodaffair
Garden Street Kway Chap has been going strong since the 40s, with its recipe handed down from generation to generation. The soup has 15 ingredients and is boiled for hours to concentrate its flavour. Their kway here is especially silky, and the innards are well-cooked to springy ends. Because everything is cut to order, do be prepared to wait a bit for their sets, which start at $5.50.
Address: 49A Serangoon Garden Way, #01-21, Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre, Singapore 555945
Opening hours: Tue-Sat 8:30am to 3:30pm, Sun 9am to 3:30pm
Tel: 9001 7844
7. Covent Garden Kway Chap
Covent Garden Kway Chap is extremely affordable, as a single-person serving costs just $3. You can also get pig skin, small intestine, braised egg and other liao, priced from just $0.50 each. The stall remains run by its 90-odd-year-old Teochew founder, who wakes up at 4am daily to prepare the offal and broth. Note that there is a minimum order of $3, though you can easily hit that amount by ordering a mix of ingredients, including their flavourful large intestines ($2).

8. Da Cheng Kway Chap

An underrated gem in Toa Payoh is Da Cheng, as they have a variety of braised ingredients that is wider than most stalls. From pig’s ears and braised pork belly, to ngoh hiang, you’ll be spoiled for choice to choose what to go with their light, aromatic kway. Prices start at $4 for a single person’s portion, and their kway is priced at just $0.60 a bowl.
Address: 127 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, #02-14, Singapore 310127
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 5:30am to 3:30pm
9. Shi Le Yuan

Michelin-approved Shi Le Yuan has made an appearance in both the 2017 and 2019 editions of the dining guide for their kway chap. Though portions are said to be small, you can get your fix for under $5 here, so it’s worth dropping by if you’re in the Redhill estate. Also, it seems like their kway chap is not braised for as long as other stalls, resulting in much cleaner-tasting fare that won’t get too jelak as you chow down. Be prepared to queue for a minimum of 20 minutes here.
Address: 85 Redhill Lane, #01-82, Singapore 150085
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 7am to 1pm
10. Siglap Kway Chap
Image credit: @jactan28
The owner of Siglap Kway Chap has been honing his craft for over 50 years, and he still makes his fare the same way he has done since day one. Spices are pan-fried before being added to the sauce to intensify their aroma, while the pork he uses is always fresh, and not frozen. Prices start from $4 for a single person’s set. What’s more, they open from 7am, so you can pop in for your early brekkie fix before going about with your day!
Address: 727 East Coast Road, 3838 Eating Place, Singapore 459073
Opening hours: Fri-Wed 7am to 7:15pm
11. Feng Ji Kway Chap
It’s near impossible to find sub-$3 hawker eats these days, but that’s exactly what you’d get at Feng Ji Kway Chap. This underrated stall in Jalan Batu has a $2.50 set that includes a generous portion of kway, with all the necessary kway chap fixings: pork belly, intestine, braised egg, and tau pok. Should you wish to zhng up your order, you can do so without breaking the bank, as extra toppings are priced from $0.50 each. Do visit early as the stall often sells out before noon!

12. Kuey Chap

Expect to queue for at least 20 minutes at Kuey Chap, a hidden gem in Toa Payoh Lorong 4. The broth and braising lor here has pronounced herbal notes, and one portion comes with quite an ample amount of goods for just $4. Pair your meat with a bowl of kway or white rice at $0.60. Apart from their kway chap, the stall also sells pig’s organ soup ($4), braised pig trotter ($5), and braised chicken feet ($3) for more to go with your kway.
Address: 93 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, #01-40, Singapore 310093
Website: Tue-Wed, Fri-Sun 5:30pm to 11pm
13. Chai Chee Kway Chap
Image credit: @hien1171
216 Bedok North is home to two big players in the local kway chap scene, of which Chai Chee Kway Chap is one. Queues here last around half an hour, as fans patiently wait for their dose of soft kway, stewed meats, and clean intestines braised in a spiced, soy-based stock. It’s $4 for a single set, or $7.50 for a set that feeds two. Don’t miss the pig skin here too, as it really is a textural delight.
Address: 216 Bedok North Street 1, #01-67, Singapore 460216
Opening hours: Tue 7am to 12:30pm, Wed, Fri-Sun 7am to 1pm
14. Chris Kway Chap
Image credit: @chriskwaychap
The next stall to try in 216 Bedok North is Chris Kway Chap. Here is where herbal flavours reign, and you can expect an aromatic, sweet stock to accompany your kway order. Another reason that draws fans to the stall is the meticulous way they braise all their offal separately, so the large intestines on your plate will taste distinct from the small intestines, for example. If you’re dining solo, it’s $6 for one set.
Address: 216 Bedok North Street 1, #01-80, Singapore 460216
Opening hours: Thurs-Sun 8:30am to 1:30pm
15. Huat Kee Kway Chap
Image credit: @huatkeekwaychap.sg
Yishun dwellers, put this stall on your radar. Huat Kee has been around since the 70s and continues to prepare delicious, homely kway chap day after day. You must come down early if you want to enjoy the full range of ingredients available here, as the stall tends to sell out fast. A one-person set is priced at $5.50 and gets you all the usual fixings, but you can top-up $2 for additional ingredients. The fried pig skin is a must.
Address: 171 Yishun Ave 7, Singapore 760171
Opening hours: Thurs-Tue 6:30am to 1:30pm
Tel: 8121 2655
16. Ying Yi Kway Chap
Image credit: @tamkokseng
This 20-year-old stall at Cheng San Market puts great care to prepare their braising liquid, as it contains a medley of spices slow-cooked for hours. It is lighter on the soy here, so expect to enjoy the natural flavours of the elements in your kway chap order, from the earthy intestines to the fatty pork belly. Expect to pay around $5 per person. The stall sells braised duck rice too!
Address: 527 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, #01-145, Singapore 560527
Opening hours: Sun-Tue, Fri 7am to 3pm
17. To-Ricos Guo Shi
To-Ricos Guo Shi at Old Airport Road Food Centre was recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand eatery in 2022, making them a must-visit if you’re in the area. Go straight for their Kway Chap Platter, available in four sizes: $8, $14, $18, and $24. Each serving comes with a generous amount of pig’s stomach, belly, intestine, and tau pok. Top up $0.80 for a single serving of kway, which we found to be delightfully smooth. You can elevate your experience with a portion of Pork Trotters (from $6) too!
