To-Ricos Guo Shi Review: Long Queue Kway Chap Stall At Old Airport Road

27th December 2022

To-Ricos Guo Shi has Michelin-approved kway chap at Old Airport Road


Though kway chap is undeniably an iconic hawker dish, it has become a little underrated over the years. Maybe it has to do with the fact that pork innards are a quintessential part of it, and there are many, especially from younger generations, who wince at the idea of eating a pig’s offals.

If you know someone who avoids kway chap because of this, or are yourself hesitant to try it, then no stall that will change their minds quite like To-Ricos Guo Shi at Old Airport Road Food Centre.


There are two reasons for this: one, their innards are cleaned extremely well, so you won’t have to worry about unpleasant smells ruining your appetite; and two, they are simply one of the best kway chap stalls in Singapore, having been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand most recently in 2022.

Food at To-Ricos Guo Shi

To-Ricos’ Kway Chap Platter comes in four different sizes: $8, $14, $18, and $24. We ordered the $8 portion which, though the smallest you can get, still had a generous amount of meat. There were slices of pig’s stomach, intestine, belly, and tau pok.


You really don’t have to worry about the innards here, as they were all so well cleaned. There wasn’t any foul smell or taste present in these—and if there was some degree of funkiness, it served to enhance the overall flavour, rather than detract from it. The intestines, in particular, had this very tender, melt-in-your-mouth quality, and any hint of funkiness blended well with the savoury braising sauce.


The slices of pork belly were less impressive. Thinly cut and somewhat dry, they paled in comparison to the innards, which were excellent in terms of flavour and texture. But I did like that the pork belly’s firmer texture nicely contrasted the soft offals and tau pok.


Speaking of tau pok, To-Ricos’ beancurd puffs were a delight to eat. Each slice of tau pok had a wonderfully spongy texture, which allowed it to absorb as much braising sauce as it could. Biting into it thus yielded all the herbal and meaty notes that were present in the platter.


To get the full kway chap experience, remember to add $0.80 to your platter to get a bowl of Kway.


The silky-smooth texture of the flat rice noodles was certainly commendable. I enjoyed slurping each strand, then following it up with a spoonful of the well-balanced, fragrant soup.


We recommend you add the Pork Trotters (from $6) to your meal, too. Like with the kway chap platter, even the smallest plate of pork trotters comes with plenty of succulent meat. Every piece here was fantastic: fall-off-the-bone tender, with a fatty and gelatinous skin to boot.


Special mention goes to the chilli, which had a particularly tangy flavour. It doesn’t have the spiciest kick, but in terms of taste alone, it checked all the boxes for me.
