3-Day Work Week Kway Chap Stall

A 9 to 5 job is bullshit. It might have existed years ago but in today's world, it is almoost extinct.

Recommended by Carrie Kan, I'm now reading The 4-Hour Work Week. While that is in progress, check this kway chap stall that operates only 3 days per week! Yes, many would certainly die for a 3-day work week. Moohahaha.

The Kway Chap is very good. Though I would have preferred the smooth, silky sheets instead of this floury, rough version, as a whole it was still worth the 15-min queue.

Chewy, springy pig skin and intestines that appealed with a robust flavour without any offensive odour usually associated with innards.

The braised pork belly is well flavoured with the braising sauce. We also ordered the tau kwa, tau pok, lor neng, tau kee. Dip the morsels into a tangy spicy chilli sauce for oomph.

Total cost for 4 pax was about $20.

Now to read up on that 4-day work week...

Xing Yun Kway Chap
Tampines Round Market & Food Centre
Blk 137 Tampines Street 11
Opens: Fridays to Sundays (and I don't think they open till late)

Chew On This: If you need another bowl of kway or want additional eggs/tau kwa etc, head straight to the front of the queue and tell the aunty/uncle. Don't re-queue! #justsaying

LOL on the 4-hour week, I console myself by convincing myself that if I love my work I never need to work a single day ;P That kway chap looks really nice. Pig skin is my fave. I tried some good ones across the causeway too. But they eat the dish with small kway teow instead of our wider rice sheets. I love these two the best so far ;D

just tried it today. you are right its outstanding. only negative point is that it does not serve any other intestines other than the big ones - which is fatty. pricing is good.
