Garden Street Kway Chup


Garden Street Kway Chup used to be situated at Blanco Court and queues were a common sight everyday. Now located at Serangoon Gardens Food Centre, it is but a shadow of its former self. I decided to try it out as I had fond memories of the days when I would queue up for about an hour on a Saturday afternoon just to get my hands(mouth rather) on their delicious Kway Chup. Alas, it turned out to be a wrong move. The Kway was very normal, so unlike the days when it was soft and silky and with a clear soup base to boot. The ingredients were very limited as well, with the Pig's tongue noticeably missing from the menu. Of those that I ordered, nothing stood out. Everything was just average. And it doesn't come cheap either. Expect to pay a premium of about 10-15% as compared to other neighbourhood Kway Chup stalls. This is yet another case of a once famous food stall biting the dust. Sorry but this will be the last time I'm eating here. For the price and quality of food, I'm better off eating elsewhere.
