And now we have Thai kway chap in Singapore! Same same but different lah
The Signature Thai Kway Chap ($5) comes with a myriad of ingredients which include pork belly, pork offal, pork slices, and fish sausages. For the uninitiated, the clear broth is what differentiates a Thai kway chap from our Singapore kway chap which uses a soy sauce-based broth. Interestingly, the noodle sheets you get in Thai kway chap is actually rolled up — a literal twist to the Singapore kway chap variant that comes in broad flat sheets. As much as 15 different types of Thai spices are used in the brewing of the broth which is nicely balanced, and armed with a slight peppery kick. With the number of spices incorporated, I was pretty surprised that the broth wasn’t as flavourful as I had thought it would be. The accompanying ingredients made up for it though. In fact, I was glad that the offal was cleaned thoroughly.
